Should I cancel the private health insurance?

Hi friends,
I'd applied for a permanent residency and have also got the medicare card number.

Should I still need a private insurance cover?

Is it a condition of your current visa ?

Yes it is.

But is it not valid until we have applied for a permanent residency?
I am eligible to receive a medicare as I am onshore and I've got the temporary card number as well.

Although, my temporary visa 485 is valid until June 2018.

Please advise.

The visa conditions of whatever visa is currently in effect would tell you exactly what is required.
