Purchasing OSHC if you already have a policy with another provider

If I have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) with another provider, must I purchase an Allianz policy?

If you have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) with another provider, you do not have to purchase an Allianz policy. However, it is a student visa requirement that you must have current OSHC for the full duration of your student visa.

The University of Western Australia’s preferred health provider for all international students is Allianz Global Assistance. You can contact Allianz directly on 13 67 42 (from within Australia) or + 61 7 3305 8841 (from overseas).

***Important update from 13/03/2020: Allianz will temporarily remove the campus representative from UWA and other universities around the Globe due to the spread of COVID-19 (also known as Novel Coronavirus). If you need assistance, you can contact Allianz 24/7 on 13 67 42 (from within Australia) or + 61 7 3305 8841 (from overseas). You can also visit their website or email them oshcwa@allianz-assistance.com.au.
