Are medical expenses covered within Australia?

5 May 2019

Unfortunately that’s a no. By law, none of our travel insurance policies are permitted to cover medical expenses incurred within Australia. If you become sick or injured while travelling in Australia, you’ll be entitled to cover for treatment under Medicare and, or your private health insurer.

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”
