Am I entiteled for Medicare as a temporary resident?

Hey there

I am applying for a DeFacto Visa with my partner and was just wondering, whether I will be entiteled for Medicare benefits or whether I will need to get a individual health cover.
Sorry, that's probably a rather stupid question.....

Thanks for helping me in advance

Once you have applied for partner visa you will be eligible for Medicare. You'll receive a temporary Medicare that entitles you to most benefits. I'm not exactly sure why the entitlements are so best to call Medicare or pop in there when you have received your application acknowledgement letter from DIAC.

Also bear in mind alot of Australian private health funds will not cover temporary residents.

Thanks for your reply , I just had another look and I am entiteled for some Medicare benefits, god knows what some means.....
I would prefer not to get private cover anyway, since I will be studying full time and that will cost enough money as it is....
Thanks again
