How to get a refund of my OSHC

If you need a refund of your Overseas Student Health Cover, we are here to help. You can request a refund for one of the following reasons:

  • You paid for cover but are not coming to Australia
  • You have been studying in Australia and your student visa was not extended, was cancelled or a renewal/extension was refused
  • You are no longer on a student visa
  • You have been granted permanent residence in Australia
  • You need to leave Australia before the end of your studies and approved period of stay
  • Your visa start or end dates have changed
  • You are not living in Australia for three months or more
  • You have taken out OSHC with another health fund
  • You want to downgrade the policy (eg. family to single)

To apply for a refund, just complete an OSHC refund form, attach the relevant documentation listed in the form, and return it to us.

Send your form and documentation to [email protected] for assessment. If you need any help completing your refund form or have any questions about the refund process, please call us on 1800 775 204.
