Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

Hi Allianz Team,

I am thinking of getting Allianz to cover me during my studies in Australia, but have some questions though:

1. Am I also covered outside of Australia eg if I go home or go on holiday during my studies?

2. Does the Allianz student cover cover appointments with Naturopaths registered in Australia?

3. If there is an emergency or one has to go to the doctor do I first have to pay the costs out of my own pocket and then wait to receive the money back from Allianz or do you cover the costs immediately?

Thank you!

Regards,

Kirsten

Hello, Kirsten, thanks for the email. More information is available here https://allianzassistancehealth.com.au/en/student-visa-oshc/cover/ and https://allianzassistancehealth.freetls.fastly.net/v_1527485430727/media/documents/OSHCStandardPolicy01-06-2018WEB.pdf_(reduced_size).pdf . In terms of your questions, coverage is only within Australia. Naturopath services are not covered. Also, our policy document says 'If you have been admitted for emergency treatment, contact Allianz Global Assistance immediately on 1800 814 781. If you have been referred to hospital for a non-emergency admission, contact the claim department on 1800 651 349 prior to admission. You will need to provide Allianz Global Assistance with the details of your treatment and hospital stay. We will then be able to confirm your cover and assist you with making arrangements for payment to the hospital". Regards, Anthony

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

I am Nguyen Quang Duy from Vietnam. I am going to study in Australia in this July, at The University of Sydney. Therefore, I want to buy an OSHC Dual family type from yours. But when I access to your website, I could not find this type. My duration of stay in Australia is 4 years, and from the requirement to make visa application, I have to pay an additional for 8 months. That means I have to buy insurance which covers 4 years + 8 months (56 months) for me and my wife. I checked the price in my university website is 10,853$ for this case. However, when I choose to buy in your website, it costs approximately 19,000$. Could you please to help me to buy for the Dual Family type? I want to buy the insurance as soon as possible for making visa. I am looking forward to hear from you.

Hello, I would like to know why the dual family Health insurance is so expensive compared to two single insurances. What happens if a couple decides to buy 2 singles instead of a family insurance?

Thank you,
Sarah

Hi Sarah, thanks for the feedback. There is no issue with buying 2 single insurance policies if you wish to do so. To add to this as well, if you are after 2 single covers, both people must be holding a valid ‘student visa’. If one is holding a valid ‘student visa’ and the other is a dependent spouse of then the only option is a dual family cover. Regards, Anthony

It is possible, and highly encouraged, to change your Overseas Health Cover from Allianz to a normal insurance provider such as Medibank, AHM, Bupa and NIB. These are all the companies you can change to that I know of. I will not make any recommendations here, however, it will always be an improvement to your existing Allianz cover.

Please, Hussain, keep us updated and let us know how it goes. I sympathise with you and fully understand why you want to change insurance. It does not take long to realise how slow and inefficient this insurance is.
