UHIP stands for the University Health Insurance Plan, a mandatory health plan that provides basic medical coverage for most doctor and hospital services in Ontario.
The following individuals are required to have coverage in the University Health Insurance Plan each year:
- All international members (student or non-student) and their dependants.
- All students, non-students and their dependants who do not have valid Canadian provincial/territorial health insurance (such as: Alberta Health, OHIP, etc.).
All enrolments must occur within your (or your dependants) first 30 days in Canada, or a $500.00 penalty fee for late enrolment will be charged.
