Medicare entitlement

I am a French citizen living in Australia and have been living here for the last 3years. My partner is a kiwi and has also been living here for around 3 years.
I am on a VISA 461 which entitles me to stay in the country for 5years. After 5 years I can renew it.
I'm not entitled to medicare card, and see no path ways for me to get one. My partner isn't a PR here as he was not present in the country before or one year after 2001 feb, therefore is unable to help with me getting a medicare card.
My qualifications are not excepted here in Australia, so currently I'm working as a waitress.
My question is there any possible ways of obtaining a medicare card in some other way?
Also If I were to live in Australia for over years would I then be entitled to a PR?
Thanks in advanced guys :-)

My now wife was also in the same situation whilst on the PMV300, however part of the conditions she was not to be a burden on the Australian Government, subsequently I hunted around for private medical. Not all private medical companies cover all Visa's. I found Bupa and they covered that particular Visa. For memory basic cover was about $60.10 per month, which covers most things .

oh ok We may look into that, it sounds reasonably cheap. we were hoping I could get medicare card as Ive fallen pregnant, and the only option is to fly back to france and give birth there as its so much cheaper.

Unfortunately with Private medical you have probably missed the boat there, most have a 12 month waiting period for pregnancy related.
