If you've recently become an Australia permanent resident, congratulations! You're now eligible for full Medicare benefits (so yes - you'll need to change your overseas visitor’s policy to a domestic policy).
At HIF, we have five great hospital policies to choose from, to find a cover that suits your needs and budget, please visit our hospital comparison table.
Then, to change your level of cover, simply;
- Complete a variation form online.
- Complete a Federal Government Rebate form
- Obtain a Medicare Eligibility Letter from Medicare (this is to ensure you're not charged any Lifetime Health Cover Loading)
- Email all three documents to email@example.com
We'll then notify you as soon as your variation request has been processed.
