Medibank is RMIT's preferred provider of OSHC. We can arrange for visa-length cover directly with Medibank, with a payment for the service when you accept your offer.
In your offer letter you will find Medibank OSHC pricing. You can pay this amount when you pay the program deposit, after which RMIT will arrange the cover directly with Medibank. A copy of your OSHC membership certificate will be sent to your RMIT email. You can use this to activate your membership when you arrive in Australia.
Medibank exclusively offers Comprehensive OSHC to partner universities.
The benefits of the Medibank Comprehensive OSHC Policy above a standard policy are:
- On-Campus Medibank Support Staff
- Medibank 24/7 Student Health and Support Line;

International students who are not on a student visa are strongly encouraged to purchase personal health cover for their time in Australia. Further details about health cover options are available from Medibank for overseas visitors.
Activate your Medibank OSHC
Once you arrive in Australia, you will need to activate your insurance so we know you have arrived. To activate your Medibank OSHC, you will need your OSHC Policy Certificate which will be waiting in your RMIT student email, then use the Medibank OSHC App or website to activate and set up your OSHC.
For any issues or queries, you can talk with a Medibank team member on campus or call 134 148 between 8.00am - 8.00pm AEST Monday to Friday.
