medicare

Hi everyone

We r so happy to have our visa stamped today and thnx again for all ur help. I just want to know about medicare as my wife is pregnant and we want to leave as soon as we can. i have heard that the medical cost is covered by medicare. does it mean that we pay upfront and medicare reimburses it later?

Will appreciate your thoughts

Good luck to all those who r waiting for their visa

thanks & regards

Which visa have you got?
And yes, medicare for those covered means a proportion of doctors' consultation fees and care in a public hospital is covered though some medical centres do what is called bulk billing too where they bill Medicare direct and you also pay nothing to them as you do with the hospital.
