    Wonderful school not making sure this insurance is required is followed.

    Visit to Ed DePt. 220 au. Visit to DR. 80au. Overnight rates in hospital. 480 a night. Medications on prescription. 60-100 to 1000'sau. And if you end up in private would be higher.
    Oh. Ambulance. 20k, 4500 au. For one trip or does the AU taxpayer pay for it if required?
    Then worry about getting a visa of any kind as a debt is owed to the Commonwealth.
    Because I see to it that I pray so that I will not encounter all of these expenses. Anyway, we can pay for these stuff if needed.

    Then you indeed, have more money than most I know in Australia. None of us could afford to be unwell for ANY period of time without medicare benefits.
    All medical expenses are again more again expensive to non citizens.

    I have nursed people from overseas in predicaments due to thinking they did not need any health insurance (young and were Christian) and ended up in hospital with debts of 20-100,000 au for the hospital, then the ambulance service and airline wanted large amounts of money to ship them home after the acute stage.

    Just not worth the risk, if one can pay for it outright if it happens then 80au a month is nothing.

    Are they also nurses who did the bridging without the insurance?

    No, I suppose they were not, but I did not think, being an overseas nurse applicant completing a bridging program would exempt one from becoming ill or being in an accident. Thats why the schools (if to abide by accreditation rules) are supposed to make sure each student has travel insurance.

    Hi Sephine,

    I just emailed the principal today. No reply yet coz it's Sunday. Hopefully by tomorrow, I'll get an update. I will get the decision from Mercy Health tomorrow. I hope it's a positive one. I just feel hopeless now. You said your agency will be the one to settle everything. Is your agency Philman?

    Yeah even without it yet. But you must purchase one after if you'll be going to IHNA especially in Melbourne. I purchased just the basic one that's $36 per month.
    What is the name of the insurance company that you applied with?
