You will be living in Montreal during your studies at McGill; therefore you will not be considered a non-resident, you will be a temporary resident and it is mandatory for you to be covered under the International Student Health Insurance.
All students are automatically charged a full-year fee ($993) for the International Health Insurance. As an exchange student in order for your premium to be adjusted, you must confirm your health insurance coverage on Minerva as of August 15th, 2016 for fall 2016 term and as of December 15th, 2016 for winter 2017 term.
Minerva ⇒ Student ⇒ International Student Health Insurance Coverage Form to confirm your coverage.
|Terms Covered||Coverage Date||Fees|
|1 Semester||Fall 2016||August 15th 2016- December 31st 2016||$331 CAD|
|Winter 2017||December 15th 2016 - April 30th 2017||$331 CAD|
|2 Semesters||Fall '16 & Winter '17||August 15th 2016 - April 30th 2017||$662 CAD|
Students who receive an August e-bill with the full-year single rate will not be re-issued a bill until the next monthly billing date. You will be able to view the above fee adjustments in your Account Summary by Term on Minerva within approximately 5 business days of your confirming coverage. Please pay the adjusted balance or the IHI amount in relation to the duration of your stay at McGill by the due date indicated on your e-bill.
Doing this will allow you to pick up your health insurance card at Service Point upon arrival at McGill University.
