All International students , excluding those with STUDENTSAFE and Unicare insurance, must pay for their consultation and claim back from their insurance.
Laboratory and Radiology charges will depend on the tests required.
Please ensure you have read and understand what conditions may or may not be covered by your insurance provider.
Your policy may not cover you for the following:

(b) the condition was first diagnosed and coverage was provided under your continuous Studentsafe-policy.
- Contraception appointments and prescriptions
- Health Screening appointments and laboratory / prescription costs
