Australia's national Medicare scheme provides free or subsidised public healthcare and access to medicines for Australian citizens and permanent residents. Expats with permanent resident visas should take advantage of the high standard of universal healthcare in Australia. Those who aren't eligible for Medicare should opt for comprehensive private medical insurance.

Perth has a large number of public and private healthcare facilities. Unless expats have a medical condition that requires specialist treatment, it is generally more convenient to make use of local doctors and medical practitioners.
