Australia's national Medicare scheme provides free or subsidised public healthcare and access to medicines for Australian citizens and permanent residents. Only certain visa categories are eligible for Medicare coverage. Eligible expats moving to Perth should make registration a priority in order to take advantage of the high standard of healthcare associated with the country's public sector. Those who aren't eligible for Medicare should opt to for comprehensive private medical insurance.

Perth has a large number of public and private healthcare facilities. Unless expats have a medical condition needing specialist treatment, it is generally more convenient to make use of doctors and medical practitioners in their local suburb or residential area.
