Cost

Medical services for Australian UC students are bulk-billed through Medicare.

The Medical Centre has an arrangement with a number of pathology and radiology centres, allowing students to be bulk-billed for many services. Fees for other services are available on request. Please ask at the Reception Desk for more information on fees.

International Students, in most instances will be charged the Medicare bulk-billing rate. For holders of OSHC Worldcare or OSHC Medibank Private, medical services will be billed directly to the insurance provider. *Holders of OSHC insurance from other providers, will need to pay for their medical services at the time of consultation, and then claim their rebate from their insurer.

Level B$38.20

Level D$108.85

It is essential that all Australian students have a Medicare number. UC students are bulk-billed for medical consultations. Australian students not dependent on their parents and earning low incomes may be eligible for a Health Care Card. This card also entitles the holder to cheaper Government subsidised medicines. More information and application forms for Health Care Cards are available from Centrelink.

All international students are required to have Overseas Student Health Insurance - OSHC (for example, OSHC Worldcare, or OSHC Medibank Private). Proof of currency of insurance (membership card) must be presented at every visit to the Medical and Counselling Centre.
