We came to know that, my wife didn't know that her health insurance was expired last year and so she never brought new one. Visa condition 8501 states that health insurance should be maintained else visa can get cancelled. But her visa is still in effect as normal according to VEVO.

Will there be any issues if we apply for PR i.e. 189 visa. As per my knowledge 189 doesn't require any private health insurance.
Please reply!!
There should be no issue with it. I recently received my PR; prior to which I was in 485. However I had maintained adequate health cover. If you think this is going to create problems, your wife can still buy one of the covers for around 95 a month from Bupa (you dont have to pay for the previous months on which your wifer was not insured) which can be terminated anytime your wife likes to or after your wife's residency application is processed through.
