have a 2 year wait before being able to benefit of MEDICARE medical system.

Could someone please correct me if I'm wrong as I am under the impression that we don't have to take out health insurance immediately and that if we need urgent treatment then we will be entitled to it.

Thanks

My questions are :
- During these 2 years, do we pay MEDICARE on our salary slips or does it
start after the 2 years ?
- If we take a private health insurance, is the cost similar to MEDICARE,
are the guarantees similar ?
Thanks

Hi Castory,

Are you sure you can't use the Medicare system straight away? I was pretty sure you were covered as soon as you arrived.

Hope this helps.

Looks like this has been confused with the condition that PR holders
cannot normally access social security benefits in the first two
years. Medicare does nto come under this restriction.
Who on earth told you otherwise?

Some temporary residents are entitled to Medicare, others are not.

If you arrive on a PR visa you are entitled to Medicare straight away.
Those not entitled to Medicare are usually exempt from paying the
Medicare levy.
