To sum up, this agreement allows for people who are visiting Australia to be eligible for limited subsidised health services for « medically necessary » treatments while visiting Australia with Medicare cover. Here is an idea of some of the basic T&Cs :
=> Be residents of the countries which are in the Commonwealth or a country which signed these agreements
=> Be admited in a public hospital. If you go to a private hospital, you’ll be ineligible to RHCA and be charged as an ineligible patient.
=> Be admited in a private hospital which has publicly contracted beds.
=> Inform the admissions staff that you want to be treated as a Medicare public patient under a RHCA. Obviously, staff should request evidence of that.
