UHIP Enrollment Process
UHIP enrollments (called International Health Care on SOLUS) for 2019-20, are processed as follows:
- International students are enrolled automatically ($ 636 annually or $ 212 per term – based on degree or non -degree registration);
- Dependents (spouse/children) of international students are not enrolled automatically. To add / renew coverage for your dependents, you must add them manually in the UHIP Portal for each new coverage period in the first 30 days or you may face a $500 late enrollment penalty plus 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 – 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.
