    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Medical expenses are not covered by the TID policy while you are in Australia. The Private Health Insurance Act 2007 prevents us from covering your medical expenses in Australia as we aren’t registered to do so.

    You may like to try contacting Medicare or your private health fund who may be able to assist you further.

    Please let me know if you have any further enquiries.
