Please familiarize yourself with Ontario’s University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP). UHIP is mandatory for all registered international students.
The plan provides doctors’ services, hospital ward accommodation, all maternity claims even if pregnancy began before you arrived in Ontario, and limited coverage for medical care outside of Ontario or Canada.
You are strongly encouraged to register for your UHIP card as soon as it is available. Your UHIP card should be carried with you at all times and must be presented at all doctor and hospital visits. Please visit the International Student Services webpage on UHIP to learn more about enrolling in UHIP as an international student at McMaster University.
Any questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
