UHIP Enrollment Process
UHIP enrollments (called International Health Care on SOLUS) are processed as follows:
- International students are enrolled automatically ($ 612 annually or $ 204 per term – based on degree or non -degree registration);
- Dependents (spouse/children) of international students are not enrolled automatically. Dependents in Ontario must be added by the student through the QUIC on-line system within the first 30 days in Ontario/start of your term(s) to avoid a late enrolment penalty of $500 and retroactive UHIP fees.;
- Returning Canadians or other students that do not yet have valid Canadian provincial/territorial health insurance (such as: Alberta Health, OHIP, etc.) are not enrolled automatically. To seek short-term UHIP enrollment and/or to learn about your eligibility for the provincial plan, please email firstname.lastname@example.org at the start of your program (include: student number and your circumstances).
Students automatically enrolled in UHIP will receive an email message mid-August and/or mid-December (titled: UHIP Fee – Action Required) to provide direct access to the UHIP Portal, where you can obtain proof of coverage or opt-out of UHIP if eligible. Please follow the directions within the first 45 days. Failure to do so, will not negate coverage or responsibility of fees.
See the Obtaining proof of UHIP section for direct access to the UHIP Portal to do so.
