International Students are often unsure about their health coverage.
What is the difference between OHIP, UHIP and the GSA Health Plan?
OHIP is the Ontario Health Insurance Plan for Ontario residents which covers general medical care, including doctors appointments and hospitalization.
UHIP is the equivalent insurance but for international students only.
The GSA Health Plan is a supplementary plan which provides dental and drug coverage. This is a mandatory health plan and therefore students are not allowed to opt-out unless they have alternative supplementary coverage.
For more information about how to enrol in UHIP please contact York International at (416) 736-5028.
