Applying for a refund

You can apply to get your money back if:

  • you’ve paid your premium and did not come to Australia
  • you’ve paid your premium on the basis of an extended stay, but the extension was not approved by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection
  • you’ve been granted permanent residence in Australia
  • you can provide proof of other OVHC cover provided by another organisation which includes the period covered by the provider.

Please keep in mind that:

  • Refunds are calculated on a monthly pro-rata basis, with a minimum refund of one month.
  • Any amount that we retain on these grounds is treated as a fee for processing your refund.
  • Any bank or transfer costs associated with the refund of premium to an overseas financial institution will be borne by you and deducted from the premium.
