Congratulations on your continued education! The decision to study outside of your province or country of residence is a big one. Chances are you have a lot on your mind but don’t forget to think about your health coverage. Outside your province of residence, your provincial health care plan offers limited coverage for emergency medical care. Our Student Visa Plan helps fill those gaps helping you and your family feel safe so you can focus on your education. Student Plan (available to students under age 55) provides emergency medical coverage up to $2,000,000 with 17 comprehensive benefits including the cost of ambulance service, hospital rooms, treatment by a doctor, diagnostic tests. As an international student, you may not be eligible for any government coverage and the costs of medical and dental treatment, for people without Canadian health insurance plans, are expensive.
While attending a Canadian academic institution, the last thing on your mind should be the high price of medical services, so be sure to add Travel Student Medical Insurance to your list of school supplies. As an option, the plan can cover multiple family members. You can also choose between four and 12 month coverage periods to suit your study terms. Student Visa Insurance doesn’t stop at the classroom door. It also provides coverage for trips you may take while studying abroad. You have until the 60th day of the new year (i.e. around March 1st) to contribute to your RRSP and lower your taxes for the previous year.
