This purpose of this Part is to help with overseas health-related costs for eligible persons during a long-term posting overseas.
The principle behind these benefits is that members should contribute to health costs for their dependants as they would in Australia. The Commonwealth helps with any excess costs.
This Part does not apply to members. It applies to their eligible dependants who live with them on the long-term posting.
See: Division 1, Eligible persons
Members serving overseas remain subject to the medical and dental provisions under the Defence Health Manual.
This Part also applies to APS employees and their eligible dependants who live with them on the long-term overseas posting.
This Part includes these Divisions.
Application to Reservists: Yes, on continuous full-time service.
