Medicare

Answer from them - below question asked.

Thank you for contacting the Australian Government Department of Human Services (DHS).



A person is eligible for Medicare if they have both:



a current visa authorising their stay in Australia.

lodged an application for permanent resident visa (excludes an application for a parent visa) with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and have permission to work in Australia or can prove relationship to an Australian Citizen or permanent resident visa holder. - other requirements may also apply.


Dear Medicare,







I (Australian Citizen) have been given conflicting information about my wife's eligibility of Medicare when she will arrive in Australia next month. So can you please confirm for me her eligibility, I have included relevant information from both Medicare and Immigration Department below.

* My wife applied for Partner Visa from Ukraine on 3 April 2016, this is a Permanent Visa application (2,7, below). This visa currently has around a 12 month processing time.

* We applied for a 12 month Visitor Visa (3 below) this was granted last week, and my wife will arrive in Australia and stay on the Visitor Visa until the Partner Visa is decided.



Both the Onshore and Offshore Partner Visas (309 & 820 below state) " enrol in Medicare, Australia's scheme for health-related care and expenses"

We know that people in Australia on a Visitor Visa can apply for a 820 Partner Visa and get Medicare waiting on a decision on the Partner Visa because of (2,7,8,10,11 &19 below).







So my wife will be in Australia on a valid Visitor Visa having applied a permanent visa too.



We have the following below - 309 Partner Visa applied (2,3,7,8,9,10,11,12 & 13).




Can you please confirm my wife while in Australia living with me on a Visitor Visa, waiting for our Partner Visa is eligible for a interim (blue) Medicare card.

Thankyou

Aaron

Fully asked question, and as expected a simple answer.

• a current visa authorising their stay in Australia


• lodged an application for permanent resident visa (excludes an application for a parent visa) with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and have permission to work in Australia or can prove relationship to an Australian Citizen or permanent resident visa holder. - other requirements may also apply.

Do you know what these other requirements are?
They may be important.

JandE stop being the fool - but you tell me the difference as this is from Medicare, as you asked before. (NO DIFFERENCE on or off shore with them)

But seems you still wish to argue - even given facts.

Is 2 of my kids with Jessica, a very nice girl that can sing.

There are only 2 of the red and white plane that fly in Australia mine fly's far more than the other. it is the biggest aeroplane a private pilot can fly and the biggest single engine bi- plane in the World.

I check rules then I follow them, so care to tell me I am wrong? on this Medicare thing.

As JandE said, the "other requirements may also apply" may be relevant. Until you apply, they may be unable to give you a definitive yes or no answer.

Capp Maggie- you know it - I asked solid question, no person as a not applicable answer for it.

The reason is not who is correct but to know what is right - stop putting incorrect crap. mine is true fact.

Maggie and JandE you both draw a short straw to say I am wrong - why you push you thought when a reply from IMMI marginally MAY support you?
