International Students and the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP)

International students in Ontario are not covered by the government's health care plan. They must join the mandatory insurance plan, arranged by the Ontario Universities, called the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP). It provides international students and their eligible family members with comprehensive protection. The cost depends on the number of individuals covered - a single person, two persons, or three or more persons. Students must enrol annually. The premium is in addition to academic fees and is charged to the student's account. To enrol, you must complete a registration form at 108 Vanier College.

For further information, consult York International, 108 Vanier College, 416-736-5177 or uhip@yorku.ca.

Please note UHIP is compulsory for all international students in Ontario.
