- Canadian Residents
- Canadian Citizens without Provincial Residency
- International Students
- Supplemental Insurance
If you’re a Canadian resident, your doctor or psychiatrist will bill your province for any fees incurred if you bring your valid provincial health care card (B.C. CareCard, OHIP card, etc.) and student ID every time you visit. If you don’t, you may have to pay out-of-pocket (debit or credit only).
You must also contact your provincial health agency to inform them that you’ll be studying outside of the province or your health coverage may be cancelled, in which case you’ll have to pay out-of-pocket.
To find out about your province's guidelines, visit our list of provincial and territorial health insurance links found below.

If you are a Canadian citizen without Provincial Residency, please visit the International Student Services Health Insurance website for more information.
If you're an international student with the McGill Blue Cross Health Insurance coverage, you can bring your insurance card to the Student Wellness Hub and your insurance company will be billed.

You can obtain or renew your health card right on Minerva.
You may also be enrolled in a Supplemental Health and Dental Plan. For details on the Studentcare plan, what's covered and how to opt out, please check the Student Accounts website.
