Default meds on a 457

OH as been offered a job on 457 visa, it's been lodged just waiting for a CO.
Our concern is I'm going as his de facto, and I've already undergone 2 operations on both shoulders. Left shoulder causing problems again, I'm in the process of sorting this out, possible another op before end of year. (here in UK) Minor problem, possible tear to tendon.
Agent knows about problems and has informed us, that I may need to have meds done.
Does anyone know or been in this situation, if I'm likely to be refused.

Thanks for taking time to read this and appeciate replys

I was suprised at how basic the meds for our 175 was - I got myself in a real stew! with hubbie having chronic but 'managed' condition - worried that this could scupper our Visa plans as had been told that anything that was likely to cause financial drain on health system in Oz could be a problem!

Anyway, went to GP, paid for a letter to confirm that his condition had been monitored and stabilised for many years and made all the family 'healthy eat for weeks' and went for meds with trepidation! The doc gave us a very brief physical exam, was not interested in seeing GP letter and did not seem at all phased about hubbies med history - focus seemed to be on diabetes, HIV, TB etc - Phew - all that stress for nothing!

Good Luck

I believe that 457 holders are responsible for their own health care and not entitled to any medicare (or whatever it's called) therefore, in the event that you may need surgery over in Oz you would not be a "financial drain" as you would already have some sort of medical insurance to cover yourselves. I'm 99% certain that 457 visa holders have to have medical insurance in place before their visa is granted. Two of my friends have just been through the process which is why im almost certain. So to answer your question - I don't think you will be refused as it won't make any difference to DIAC if you are fully covered

There is a duty under the visa for the sponering employer to provide health cover
