Australia's public healthcare system, Medicare, provides subsidised or fully-funded medical treatment to those who qualify. Citizens of Australia and New Zealand, as well as holders of certain visa categories, are usually eligible for these services. Those on shorter-term visas will usually not be covered under Medicare and will need to take out private health insurance instead.
