British Columbia students must have current enrolment in the BC Medical Services Plan. A valid medical insurance identification number (BC Care Card) to be provided when they visit Health Services.
Students from other provinces should continue their provincial medical coverage and provide their medical insurance identification number when they visit Health Services. All Canadian provincial plans and those of the Yukon and Northwest Territories are acceptable to Health Services but may not be acceptable to private physicians offices, clinics, hospitals, or laboratories. Students from Quebec can opt out of their insurance plan and apply to BC Medical Services Plan, or they can pay for services at the time of their visit then seek reimbursement from their Quebec plan.
Students will be billed directly at time of visit to see a physician. Reimbursement from their private medical plan can be done with receipt provided. Students who are not residents of Canada must arrange for interim medical insurance* coverage prior to their arrival in BC. Interim medical insurance provides coverage for three months until the student is eligible to enrol in the BC Medical Services Plan. Once eligible, students must continue their enrolment in the BC Medical Services Plan for the duration of their stay in Canada. The enrolment process for the BC Medical Services Plan can be started on arrival to BC as the process does take approximately three months.
*Interim medical insurance is not the same as the extended medical coverage offered by the UVSS. Extended medical coverage is in addition to basic coverage offered by interim medical insurance or the BC Medical Services Plan.
