Future life decision with dysthymia!

Hi pat,

How would a dysthymic disorder international MBA graduate SURVIVE in Australia without any Permanent Residency, without Medicare, and few supportive network? In short, I don't think any helpful convenience from Australian government to favor us holding an Australian Temporary Visa granted from the bridge of having done 2 years MBA course (no way to get this visa without being A master graduate) there to afford those terrible and hopeless problems? that is terribly sad.

I always wish to have my life in Australia, however with these struggling i should have returned to my home country, perhaps much more convenience? the reality and my thought are fighting each other very depressive.
i understand my question is a bit broad because I am not your local and found this blog or page by chance.

Please suggest any advice!

Hi Susan - I'm not sure that I fully understand your question, but I believe you are asking about the health options available for non-Australians who are living in the country and need healthcare. For those who aren't aware of this, Australia has a system known as Medicare, which was instituted in 1984 and coexists with a private health system.

I suggest looking into HCF (Hospitals Contribution Fund of Australia) which was formed in 1932 to provide health insurance cover to Australians. Since then, it has grown to become one of the country’s largest combined registered private health fund and life insurance organisations. HCF provides private health insurance cover for a full range of health benefits including private hospital, Australia-wide ambulance cover and ancillary services. You can find more information at this link: http://www.hcf.com.au/

Another option for you is to use the insurance comparison services provided by this site which enables you to compare Australian insurance providers: http://youcompare.com.au/healthinsurance

I hope this information answers your question, will you let me know?
Thanks, Pat
