New for UHIP Students!

New University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) information

Jul 3/13

The University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) provides insurance to pay the cost of the hospital and medical services that students or employees and their families at participating Ontario universities and affiliated colleges might need to maintain their health while in Canada.

UHIP is basic health care insurance for non-resident students and employees at participating universities

  • all international (non-resident) students must have health care insurance while studying in Ontario.
  • international employees working in Ontario who cannot get OHIP
  • family members of international employees working in Ontario who are not eligible for OHIP and,
  • international employees who can get OHIP after a three-month waiting period

Beginning after September 1st of every academic year, all UHIP students can now access and print their proof of UHIP cards electronically through a personalized UHIP account - there will no longer be proof of UHIP cards available for pick-up!

All students enrolled in UHIP will be given a personal UHIP account through to print off proof of UHIP coverage cards, check claim status and more!

Register today! Step-by-step instructions are provided in the related documents below.
