All international students and their dependents (spouse or children) residing in Ontario, must be enrolled in UHIP, the University Health Insurance Plan for the duration of their time at Queen’s University.
UHIP is a mandatory basic health plan that provides doctor and hospital services comparable to the Ontario provincial health plan provided to residents.
Effective September 1st, 2012 all international students will be automatically enrolled in single UHIP coverage. The duration of coverage and associated fee is pre-determined based on the student’s registration status with the university. The appropriate UHIP fee for single coverage will be applied directly to the student’s SOLUS account and managed with other payments and deadlines. (See: Registrar’s web site)
International students with dependents (spouse or children) residing with them in Ontario must visit the Queen’s University International Centre to enrol or re-enrol their dependents in UHIP coverage within the first 30days. Failure to do so will result in a $ 500 late enrolment penalty plus retroactive UHIP fees.
All international students must visit the Queen's University International Centre (QUIC) to finalize their registration in UHIP and receive confirmation of health coverage for doctor and hospital visits.
UHIP coverage for new students will begin August 10th (for fall registrations), December 10th (for winter registrations) and April 10th (for summer registrations). UHIP coverage for returning students will begin September 1st.
Only those students who provide proof that they are covered by a comparable plan can be exempt from UHIP. See UHIP exemptions for the current list of comparable plans. For additional UHIP information please visit: http://www.quic.queensu.ca/incoming/healthinsuranceandcare.asp
The 2012/2013 annual fees are as follows:
|Student plus one dependent||$1,368|
|Student plus two or more dependents||$2,052
