Waiting

Hi Ramasharma
I haven't seen many grants here lately, that's why it's great to see a few more putting details and joining us in this waiting room. I'm not sure which month is being processed, but there are so many variables in these assessments that one never knows. Some are quicker, but most seem to take a bit longer than expected. If you have a look back through this thread you'll get the idea. Please keep us up-to-date with any contacts and developments. You never know who you will be helping. Thanks and cheers... Hope you both can get together at weekends...

Patience is a virtue! This wait it getting frustrating as my partner and I live in different cities as his visa is tied to his employer (457) and we have jobs in different cities

Guys, I must've missed something while reading about the 820 application. On the previous page you've been discussing getting your medicare with just the BVA being granted upon lodgement of the application. Does that guarantee Medicare access to every applicant? If yes, that's great news. Also, as far as I know, once the BVA is granted you are still obliged to obey the conditions of your current visa unless expired, in which case the BVA kicks in. But on top of that, you would also be able to access Medicare even though your current visa might still be valid?

Medicare eligible date

Hi Bay56
Here is the current Medicare enrolment form -
http://www.humanservices.gov.au/spw/...101-1306en.pdf
The form shows the eligibility details pretty clearly. We got our Medicare card soon after lodging our 820/801 application. It was after the BVA had been granted but well before it became effective. Medicare asked for the email/letter acknowledging lodgment and showing the grant date of the BVA. We got a Medicare card fairly easily and quickly while my partner was still covered by a student visa, but before the BVA kicked in. Hope this helps. Cheers...

Legend, thanks a lot. As soon as I apply for my 820 I will do this. I'm really tired of forking out $70 or each time so for a GP to tell my I've got a cough and that he will provide me with a med cert.

Medicare

If you live near bigger population centers like the Sydney CBD there are lots of very good bulk-billing doctors to help you out. We have one about 5 minutes from home. Make sure you get your flu-vax too... cheers...

Mine was expired and I havn't noticed. I went to Dr regarding urgent matter and I had to PAY. Don't do the same bro.

You don't have to wait till you get the actual card in your hand to be able to builkbill - call Medicare and they will provide you temepary NO you can give to the receptionist in any clinic she will let you in till you get the actual card.

Good luck with the wait
Hi mrezk,

In my case, Medicare sent me a replacement card (good for another year) a month before expiration of my first card even without me contacting them.

Just posted in the main forum - got notification last night, very happy

I lodged mine in October 2013 but my circumstances may be different from yours. See my post.

I already have Medicare so that's not an issue. I can get "proper" PHI now though rather than visitors cover.

Congratulations troels. That's great news indeed!

My husband has been here on 457 for 1 year now, and I also went through an agent, with proofs spanning over 10 years! (We have known each other that long!).

What country are you from? And did you file a decision ready application?

Congratulations once again It must be such a relief!

Congratulations!

Hi Troels - Wonderful news, congratulations. Six months seems quicker than most. Did you apply through Sydney or? What country are you from? Low risk? Any more details you can share would be very welcome. Enjoy your life together in Oz. Cheers and good luck...
