Private Health Insurance for 820 holder

Hi! Quick question...

I used to be on a Graduates 485 and one of the conditions was that you needed to have proper private health insurance (Overseas Visitors Health only...which is pretty crap...costs a lot and doesn't include any extras).

I've been on an 820 visa since June 2015 and just crossed my mind that I may be able to apply for a different private health insurance (incl extras I want etc...)?? Is this right?? Or do I have to wait until the PR 801 gets approved

Thanks!

Yes you can apply for private health insurance. My husband is on an 820 and waiting on 801 PR and we've had NIB extras cover since he arrived in March 2014. The only reason we didn't get hospital cover was (a) it's pretty expensive and (b) I've had private hospital cover all my life and never used it. It's up to you which health insurer you use, do a bit of a look around and take it from there.
