For full time international undergraduate students at Waterloo you can receive health insurance or University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP). You will be automatically charged for the insurance as part of your tuition. In order to activate the plan you must be registered on quest as “fees arranged” (under the finances tab).
Sun Life Financial will then send you a confirmation email with your UHIP card attached. You’ll need to have your UHIP proof of coverage card accessible at all times in case of a medical emergency.
This plan generally covers: doctor appointments, hospital stays, and diagnostic tests.
To submit a claim:
We recommend visiting health services on campus. However if you choose to visit an off campus clinic please ensure you bring the UHIP claim form. In all cases bring your UHIP card.
For more info on insurance or health and dental plans please see the international student guide.
