In Australia dental work is quite expensive, and is not covered under the Overseas Student Health Cover (unless you arrange for extra cover at an additional cost). For a list of dentists in your area, consult the Yellow Pages telephone directory.
Ambulance transport is not free in Australia. Your Overseas Student Health Cover covers you for calling an ambulance in an emergency only. For further information, please contact your OSHC provider directly.
