Would a recent chronic decease affect the outcome of my Permanent Visa?

Hi everyone!
I've been in Australia for a year, I arrived on a visa 300 and was granted the visa 820 three days after applying for it. I've been on this visa for 6 months already so now I'm just missing 1.5 years to be able to apply for the Permanent partner visa 801.
Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with arthritis 2 months ago and I am already on a program provided by medicare to people with chronic conditions ( a few visits per year to the physiotherapist).
But not until yesterday dawned on me the fact that this may affect the outcome of my next visa, wouldn't it? After all I'll be an expense to the country for the rest of my life and I'm only 27 so it's a long way...

What do you think? Has anyone been on this situation? I was completely healthy when I got here.

Thank you so much for your answers!

What sort of arthritis is it? Rheumatoid, osteo or some other form. I honestly don't think that arthritis with only a few visits a year to a physio is going to cause you any grief and I really wouldn't be too worried about it. But please be aware that a diagnosis of 'arthritis' without being overly specific about it can lead to other really nasty problems. I was only in my early 20s when I was told I had non-specific arthritis that lead to a diagnosis of lupus many years later, so just keep a check on that side of things and get yourself a good rheumatologist if you have any questions.

With only a couple of visits per year it will be fine it is only where the cost is substantial.

Also I believe you don't redo the health check at the 801 stage anyway (someone can correct me if I am wrong).

I am sorry about your diagnosis. Is it the Australian heat that has done it?

Yeah, as of right now - there's no further health exam for the 801, from what I've seen. When you first apply, they're only looking for conditions that will cost the Australian system $40,000 or more over your first five years in the country. No way would a few visits a year come anywhere near that threshold. You can take a deep breath - you've got nothing to worry about.

It's osteoarthritis, I haven't seen a reumathologist, do you think I'll need it with osteoarthritis? I'm so sorry about your diagnosis. All the best!

Hey thanks for your response, I don't think it was the heath, rather the opposite. I'm in Melbourne and during winter you rarely see the sun for months. This and other factors made me very depressed and I think this compromised my immune system. Further more I had a vitamin D deficiency..
This is my explanation at least, after reading a million articles. The doctors just ask me if I ever had an accident. But I never did so, who knows!

Yes, I don't think I have to undergo the medical again but wouldn't they have access to my Medicare history and such? And if they consider the disability benefits that maybe one day I'll need. That's my fear...

Unfortunately they never know. My niece got osteoporosis as 5 years old.

I am unsure if they have access to Medicare but I don't think your Medicare would be any different to those that go to the dr regularly.
