UHIP is a primary insurance plan that provides basic medical coverage for most doctor and hospital services in Ontario. UHIP is administered for students by the Queen's University International Centre (QUIC), located in the John Deutsch University Centre.  Detailed information is available at: http://quic.queensu.ca/incoming/uhip.asp.

International students will be automatically billed.
