Priority appointments are allocated each day based on severity of illness. So please tell us if you are unwell, as we have appointments reserved for illness on the day. Bring your current UNSW student card and your Medicare card or Health Insurance card to your consultation.
Domestic student fees
For Domestic (local) students who holds a Medicare card there is no cost to see a GP. A small fee may be charged for some vaccinations and dressings if needed.
International student fees
We offer Bulk Billing to enrolled international students of UNSW. This means that if you are currently enrolled and are covered by a Overseas Health Cover (OSHC) that we can directly bill, there will be no cost to you or your immediate family for seeing a GP. We are able to directly bill to Medibank, AHM, Allianz and BUPA. If you are covered by a different OSHC insurer, you may need to pay upfront and claim the cost back later from your health insurer. Please show the staff on reception your UNSW Student Card, and your Medicare or OSHC card on arrival. UNSW Health Service’s preferred provider is Medibank OSHC. For any help or questions regarding OSHC or to activate your account, you can find Medibanks’ Office on campus at Shop G1,The Blockhouse, or you can call them on 13 23 31.
All appointments with us are completely confidential and the health service does not link or share your personal records with the university.
If you can’t attend your appointment, call 9385 5425 before your appointment so we can allocate your appointment to someone else. A minimum of 4 hours notice is required. A cancellation fee of $40.00 will apply for non attendance / appointments not cancelled in advance.
Access to the service
Q. Can I use UNSW Health Services after I graduate?

Here at the Health Service we directly bill children under the age of 16 years old.
