Enroling in UHIP

 

For Students

 

All International Students

All international students registered at Queen’s University will be automatically enroled in single person UHIP.

The UHIP fee will be applied directly to the student’s SOLUS account and the payment can be managed in the same method as  all other payments to the university. Payment information is available through the Office of the University Registrar.

The fee and duration of UHIP coverage required is determined based on the student’s registration status at the university.

Degree  students

Degree students are enroled in  annual  UHIP coverage.

  • if starting in the fall term, UHIP coverage is valid from Aug.10/2013 to Aug.31/2014
  • if starting in the winter term, UHIP coverage is  valid from  Dec.10/2013 to  Aug.31/2014
  • if starting in the summer term, UHIP coverage is valid from Apr. 10/2014  to Aug. 31/2014

Non-Degree students

Non-Degree (ie. exchange) students are enroled in  UHIP coverage for each term of their registration.

  • if registered in the  fall term, UHIP coverage is valid from Aug. 10/2013 – Dec. 31/2013
  • if registered in the  winter term, UHIP coverage is valid from Dec. 10/2013 – Apr. 30/2014
  • if registered  in the summer term, UHIP coverage is valid from Apr.10/2014 – Aug. 31/2014

Upon arrival/return to campus, all international students must  visit the International Centre (Room 117, JDUC) to  finalize the  UHIP enrolment process and to learn how to activate their  UHIP coverage in the  on-line card system.    This process will provide proof of UHIP coverage, a requirement for all doctor and hospital visits.

 

All International Students with Dependents

All international students with dependents (ie. Spouse or Children)  must visit the Queen’s University International Centre (Room 117, JDUC) to enrol or re-enrol their dependents in UHIP  within their first 30 days in Canada.

Failure  to do so, will result in a  $500 late enrolment penalty, plus retroactive UHIP fees.   This additional fee will be applied separately to the student’s SOLUS account.   The duration of UHIP coverage  for dependents will match that of the student’s (as noted above).

 

All Other Students That Do Not Have Valid Canadian (Provincial / Territorial) Health Insurance

All other students that do not have valid Canadian (Provincial/Territorial) health insurance must visit the Queen’s University International Centre (Room 117, JDUC) to enrol  in UHIP until proof of alternative approved  coverage can be provided.
