Question Is my understanding of Permanent residency correect?

Hey there, pardon me if my question is general, but I wanted someone to outline this for me.

Its unclear to me how permanent residency works in a couple of regards, and what is the difference between it and temporary residency.

For instance, I was considering applying for medicare although I'm only on a Bridging visa, as I thought I fell in the 'applied for permanent residency' criteria, since I've applied for a partner visa 820. However, after realizing I do not qualify for study loans on a temporary partner visa, I believe I was mistaken.

Medicare and study loans are different things so have different eligibility criteria. You have applied for an 801 visa as well as the 820, so you have “applied for permanent residency”. You haven’t been granted this so you are not, yet, a permanent resident.
