Information for Australians on 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.
You’ll need to prove you’re from Australia and eligible for Medicare when you’re in another country.
To be covered under a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA) with Australia, you’ll need to meet the agreement conditions.
