OSHC Extras

Overseas Student Health Cover Extras is an affordable Extras cover designed for international students studying in Australia.

This cover is not required by the Australian Government but OSHC Extras provides additional cover for the common services that young single people need occasionally, such as dental, optical, physiotherapy, chiropractic services and osteopathic services.

Extras insurance is popular in Australia because the government does not offer these services to all Australians for free.
