Health Insurance




The University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) is a mandatory health plan to ensure that international students have basic health care coverage while studying in Ontario.

As an international student, you are automatically enrolled in UHIP and the cost is included on your student account, but you must show your UHIP card and present a claim form every time you use health care services. Be sure to register online, print your card, and always have it with you. UHIP coverage may also be extended to your eligible dependent family member(s).
