Allianz Global Assistance launches new OVHC product
The Australian Government, through the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, requires all holders of a temporary resident visa to maintain OVHC during their entire stay in Australia.
The new product provides cover for in hospital medical treatment, prescription medicines, surgically implanted prostheses and emergency ambulance transport.
Allianz Global Assistance Chief Executive Officer, John Myler, said Allianz Global Assistance understands that taking care of your health is an important part of making your stay in Australia as safe and enjoyable as possible.
“Our new OVHC product is competitively priced and designed to provide all the health insurance cover you need whilst working in Australia on a temporary visa,” said Mr Myler.
Allianz Global Assistance offers two types of OVHC that overseas visitors can purchase, Budget Visitors and Visitors Plus.
Mr Myler said it is important we continue to provide our customers with quality products to suit their needs and provide assistance whenever they need it.
“Medical treatment can be expensive and as overseas visitors are not eligible for Medicare they may find it difficult paying for treatments when costs can be more than $1,000 a day.”
Overseas visitors can purchase single, dual family or multi-family policies depending on what best suits their need when coming to Australia.
