Cost of UHIP
The length of UHIP coverage you are required to have is pre-determined by your type of studies, or in the length of your work contract at Queen’s University, and if you have Canadian citizenship or not.
Required Terms of Coverage
Students in Degree/Credit programs
Automatically enroled in single person UHIP coverage for the full academic year (or the remainder of the academic year based on their term start).
Students in Non-degree/Non-Credit programs
Automatically enroled in single person UHIP coverage each term that they are registered at Queen’s University.
The (single person) UHIP fee will be applied directly to your SOLUS account. Payment for this coverage can be managed in the same method as all other payments to the university.
All students with dependents (spouse/children) residing with them in Ontario
Must visit the Queen’s University International Centre (Room 117, JDUC) to enroll their dependents in UHIP. Failure to do so within the first 30 days will result in a $ 500 late enrolment penalty plus retroactive UHIP fees.
Students and their dependents who do not have valid Canadian provincial/territorial health insurance (such as: Alberta Health, OHIP, etc.)
Must also enroll in UHIP coverage until they can obtain Canadian provincial/territorial coverage. With proof of this coverage, UHIP coverage can be cancelled.
