Mandatory Participation in Supplemental Health Plan
Quebec legislation requires that you, your spouse and children must be covered under a group health insurance plan providing at least drug coverage if you are under age 65 and are eligible for coverage under that plan.
When first enrolling for benefits, you can refuse participation in the McGill Health Plan only if you provide proof of alternative health coverage (e.g. through your spouse or through membership in a professional order or association). For more information refer to Supplemental Health plan.
For further details, please refer to the RAMQ website.
Provincial Plan Replacement Coverage
Quebec requires that new arrivals from outside the country, or returning Canadians who no longer qualify for provincial health benefits, satisfy a waiting period of up to 3 months. McGill University offers health benefits coverage under the Provincial Plan Replacement Coverage during this waiting period.
Retired? 65 or over?
Consult the life events sections When you retire and When you turn age 65 for important information concerning your coverage.
