108 >AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION 2012 APPLICATIONS AND VISAS >ALLIANZ GLOBAL ASSISTANCE Look after your health while you study in Australia International students need specific health cover while they are studying in Australia. Allianz Global Assistance supports students through the provision of specialised products. OSHC Worldcare covers the cost of out-of-hospital medical treatment, in- hospital medical treatment, emergency ambulance cover and benefits for prescription medicines. EDUCOVER This is our health care and travel product especially for international students who are studying in Australia but not on a student visa. Educover is suitable if you are studying in Australia on any number of non- student visa subclasses, including: working holiday visa, short stay tourist or business, professional development, skilled graduate temporary or if you are a visiting academic. HERE ARE SOME KEY TIPS FOR WHEN YOU COME TO STUDY IN AUSTRALIA When studying overseas, you will experience many new things – a different culture and climate, different foods and a new lifestyle. All of these things can have an impact on your physical and mental health, so, as a leading assistance company in Australia, we want to share some tips to help ensure your health and well-being. • Sun and surf safety: the Australian sun is very strong so we recommend you wear sunscreen of SPF30 when outdoors. A wide brimmed hat will help to protect your face and neck from the sun. And with stunning beaches in Australia, you will want to head to the beach. Please remember to only swim at beaches that are patrolled by lifeguards and always swim between the red and yellow flags. You knew us previously as Mondial Assistance, though we have been part of the Allianz Group for more than 10 years. Now we are Allianz Global Assistance, as part of a global brand migration to extend our reach and help us to mean more things to more people. We are one of the leading suppliers of quality heath cover and assistance services for international students. We have been helping international students in Australia for over 11 years through the provision of our specialised product – OSHC Worldcare. HOW CAN WE HELP YOU WHILE STUDYING IN AUSTRALIA? We support international students through the provision of two health cover products: OSHC Worldcare Educover. Both products will provide you and your family with the confidence that your health costs will be covered while in Australia, allowing you to focus on your studies and get the most out of your student experience in Australia. OSHC WORLDCARE Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is a compulsory health cover for international students on a student visa in Australia. The Australian Government requires all holders of a student visa to maintain OSHC during their stay in Australia. International students who do not maintain their OSHC are at risk of having their visas cancelled. THE BENEFITS OF OSHC WORLDCARE OSHC Worldcare gives you access to medical services to help you maintain your health. It provides cover for the costs of: • Out-of-hospital medical treatment • In-hospital medical treatment • Prescription medicines • Emergency ambulance assistance • OSHC Worldcare gives you peace of mind – accidents and illness do happen; with OSHC you are covered. • 24 hour emergency helpline • Dedicated on-campus representatives at campuses nation-wide • Direct billing at over 100 medical providers across Australia, that means no paperwork for you when claiming • Claims processing on- campus with vouchers redeemable for cash at Australia Post outlets
