Does a Pregnant Woman with Visa 189 could avail full benefits of OZ health care services?

RyanCFCRyanCFC FahaheelMember
Good day po to all.. I and my wife just wanted to become aware of Australia Health Care services particularly on pregnant women. We are a young couple already having PR Visa 189 and yet to enter OZ by December. Gusto lang po sana naming malaman if ever my wife becomes pregnant before entering Australia and planning to have her delivery in one of Australian Hospitals, magiging covered po ba siya sa medicare or any health care services provisions? Hoping for some generous inputs. Thanks po. May God bless you all..

    I have read similar case, and yes nakakuha sila ng full benefits sa medicare from check ups to delivery.. if im not wrong pati nga ata CS halos minimal fee lng sila sa public hospital.. i suggest see the thread on cost of giving birth.. mas marami info doon.. GB :D

    Hello @RyanCFC,

    My wife is due on January 2017 and we confirmed that if you have medicare, you'll be taken care of for free in public hospitals. So it would include the following (mga encountered and inquiries namin so far):
    1) For Delivery Process and accommodation
    2) Checkup/consultations
    3) Pathology Tests (Blood/urine/gtt...)

    Ang binayaran lang namin ay half ng ultrasound, the other (almost) half is paid for by medicare/government. Ultrasound here 2d may cost about 180AUD.

    Reminder lang, get your medicare asap when you arrived =). Godbless!

    @Sophia Hi, I just want to ask sana anong nangyari sa inyo if nacover ba kayo ng Medicare? I think medyo similar case namin sa inyo. 189 naman visa namin pero I think same lang yun. My wife is currently pregnant and pagdating pa lang namin sa Sept kami magenroll sa Medicare. Covered kaya agad yung pregnancy and childbirth? Thank you in advance!

    @dark_knight Hello, Yes po cover lahat ng medicare ala kami binayaran for check up and delivery. just apply the medicare pag dating nyo (they will give u temporary card naman and u can use agad) and book an appointment sa GP. for me kase 34 weeks na ako nung dumating kami oz kaya pinriority nila ako kase nga malapit na manganak :-). just decide which hospital kayo manganganak para matell nyo sa GP nyo.

    ilan weeks na ba?

    Hi @Sophia @dark_knight. Sorry, question naman. We just received our visa grant yesterday and my wife is currently 12 weeks pregnant. Kelangan pa ba namin ipaalam sa DIBP yung circumstance namin? Since direct grant kami, wala kami way para ma-contact yung CO e. Btw, we're planning to move on the first week of October in Melbourne tapos dun na sana manganak si misis.

    Hi @ fufudoods. Congrats for your new bundle of joy.
    First namin ginawa pag dating namin ng Australia, nag apply kami agad ng Medicare at centrelink. they will give you temporary card naman so you can use it agad habang ala pa ung card mismo. then nagpa appointment kami sa GP sa parang mga health center, then I showed all the pregnancy medical report ko from Dubai and then he asked me san hospital ko prefer manganak. then he send all my medical report sa hospital and he refer me to the hospital na yun then nagpa appointment na ako sa OB for that hospital the ayun na dun na ako nagpatsek up til manganak ako. nde daw kase pede mag direct ka sa OB at hospital agad, you need GP like family doctor.

    let me know if may question ka pa.
