Health Insurance

It is very important to have health insurance while you are overseas as many countries do not have a Medicare style universal health system.You also need to carefully consider what that health insurance covers – including all the potential ailments you could suffer in the country where you are based plus the countries you are likely to visit while you are based overseas.

Upon returning to Australia, you may be required to undertake a ‘qualifying period’ before you can make a claim on your Australian health insurance.You need to talk to your insurer to find out what restrictions apply to returning expats.
