Healthcare in Melbourne

Healthcare in Melbourne is governed by the same hybrid public-private sector service provision which is found in Australia as a whole.

Even expats who are eligible to take advantage of the public system will find that certain aspects of healthcare are left uncovered. The private system fills in the gaps accordingly. These extras can be incredibly expensive without coverage, and for this reason, even permanent residents who are eligible for Medicare should take out additional private health insurance.
