Hi everybody!

This might be kind of a random question, but here we go ;)
Even though I am only 31 years old I have a bad hip already (as in: worn with age, like old people can have). I am applying for the 457 as a secondary applicant at the moment and will also need an appropriate health insurance for that. I am a bit worried now that either Australia won't accept me as a secondary applicant or that the health insurance won't accept me.
As my condition might cost the government and/or insurance quite some money in the future?

Anyone who has experience with this or something similar?

Thanks guys!

Health insurance providers may have limitations on pre-existing conditions, so while you can undoubtedly buy coverage, it may not cover expenses related to that condition.

As for your 457, you may want to simply see if medical checks are requested (as they aren't always), and if they are, see if you meet the health check. If you have specialists reports regarding your condition, that would help in any medical assessment.

Very unlikely to result in any visa refusal, but if an applicant is deemed to have a costly health condition during a 457 application the sponsoring employers are sometimes asked to complete a health undertaking to meet all the medical costs relating to the condition before the visa is granted.

Thank you for the info, Adam!
