About reciprocal health care agreements
These are agreements with some countries where visitors can get publicly funded medically necessary care.
Some agreement countries don’t cover the cost of medicine when you travel to them. Others will partly cover the cost of prescribed medicine.
Proving you’re eligible
You’ll need to prove you’re from Australia and eligible for Medicare when you’re in another country.
Medical care when you travel to another country
To be covered under a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA) with Australia, you’ll need to meet the agreement conditions.
