Medibank OSHC

Medibank OSHC

If you have a student visa, you’ll have health insurance. We can help make it work for you.

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) covers all student visa holders for:

  • visits to the doctor
  • hospital fees
  • prescription medications 
  • emergency ambulance.

When you organised your visa, you would also have applied for OSHC. Medibank is the private health insurer used by most students at RMIT.

How do I get my card?

First, you will need to activate your card. To do this, you’ll need your OSHC policy certificate, which you should find in your email. Just search ‘Medibank’ in your email account. You’ll also need your passport.

Go to Medibank OSHC to activate your card, or download the Medibank OSHC app. You can watch this video  for more detail on how to get your OSHC card. 

Once you have activated your card, you will receive it in the mail to your Australian postal address. 

How do I make a claim?

When you visit a doctor or hospital and pay a fee, you need to keep the receipt.

To make a claim, you can take a picture of the receipt and submit your claim through the Medibank OSHC app. Watch this video to find out how to make a claim through the app.
