Health Insurance For Foreigners Discussed

June 15, 2012 · Posted in Australia & Pacific 

Being migration professionals, Registered Migration Agents know how important it is for their clients to be protected by health insurances while in Australia.

In some cases, reciprocal agreements are in place between the Australian government and other countries where travellers can get automatic health covers from public funded insurers.

However, registered migration agents are also well-placed to advise their clients on the necessary level of cover they will require if they are visiting from a country that does not have such an agreement in place.

Of course, in these cases it pays well to plan in advance and have a number of options available for customers to follow up or even offering to provide the relevant services directly.

Overseas Visitors Cover is a popular choice for those travellers looking to protect themselves in the event of injury, with a range of medical procedures and secondary services covered by the insurance product.

Insurance policies would vary from provider to provider and also on the level of premium and thus would affect one’s ability to seek the level of health care. It is therefore important that Migration Agents make their clients aware of these factors so that they can make informed decisions when they come to the country.

At the New Australian Immigration Landscape Conference to be held on over 28 to 30 June 2012, registered migration agents will be able to meet with a number of specialist providers across a range of fields – including health insurance.

During the event, a specialist International Sales Consultant from insurance provider BUPA will be available for attendees to discover new ways to provide cover not only for their clients but also for their business endeavours.

With an online application that can assess all your client visa needs and experienced sales teams that can provide qualified advice on the appropriate levels of cover, BUPA is well placed to deliver information that has the capacity to improve the level of service you can provide to your customers and clients.

In addition to these services, the team attending the conference will also have a fully qualified nurse on staff to provide a ten minute consultation on heart health – including blood pressure measurements, cholesterol screenings, glucose levels and recommendations.

On top of this, there will also be a massage therapist on hand to provide soothing relief to stiff necks and cramped shoulders – the result of long hours in front of a computer or hunched up on the phone to clients and providers.
