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 dependents.
- All students, non-students and their dependents who do not have valid Canadian provincial/territorial health insurance (such as: Alberta Health, OHIP, etc.).
All enrollments must occur within your (or your dependents) first 30 days in Canada, or a $500.00 penalty fee for late enrollment will be charged.
