Your Health Insurance
All registered international students in automatically enrolled in the Foreign Health Insurance plan. Full time international students are also automatically enrolled in the Graduate Student Union (GSU) dental plan in addition to the Foreign Health Insurance. For information about Graduate Student Union Dental Plan, visit their website.
When you arrive in Corner Brook, you must meet with the Student Programming Coordinator (International) in AS234B to register for your health insurance. If you have any questions about your health insurance, please contact us.
Automatic coverage does not apply to students on a work term, dependents of students, post docs or some visiting researchers. For information on Opting into the Foreign Health Insurance, click here. (Opt-In page from my edits goes embedded here)
Please note that other insurance that you purchase either at home or after you come to Canada will not be accepted as adequate coverage.
You may be eligible to opt out from our insurance plan. To find out if Opt-out applies to you click here.
It is important to understand your health insurance coverage and the health care system in Canada. More information about this can be found on this site or visit Student Services and meet with the Student Programming Coordinator (international) to discuss your options.
