Only certain visa categories are eligible for Medicare coverage.

Those who aren't eligible for Medicare should take out private medical insurance instead.

Perth has a large amount of public and private healthcare facilities. Unless expats have a medical condition needing specialist treatment, it is more convenient to make use of doctors and medical practitioners in their local suburb or residential area.
