Healthcare in Melbourne

Healthcare in Melbourne is governed by the same hybrid public-private sector service provision that is found in Australia as a whole.

Expats who are eligible to take advantage of the public system, Medicare, will find that certain aspects are left uncovered. The private system fills in the gaps accordingly. These extras can be incredibly expensive without coverage though, and for this reason even expat permanent residents who are eligible for Medicare should take out additional private health insurance.
