Updated with FAQs August 25, 2020

Dis-enrolling from UHIP for students studying remotely updated November 16, 2020

International students new to U of T in 2020-21

You are automatically enrolled in the University Health Insurance Program (UHIP) starting August 10. Due to COVID-19 quarantine requirements, early coverage during the period August 10 – 31 is available free of charge. Fees for coverage during the regular academic year will be listed on ACORN, your student account.

You need to show your UHIP card and carry a UHIP Claim Form every time you use health care services, so print yours today. Register online at www.mysunlife.ca, print your card and carry it with you. Instructions on how to print your UHIP card are now available.

Dis-enrolling from UHIP for students studying remotely

The fall 2020 UHIP dis-enrollment period is closed. If you were unable to submit a fall application or your location plans have changed, please email uhip.information@utoronto.ca.

Students who have dis-enrolled from UHIP but arrive in Ontario, Canada prior to the end of the fall semester are required to contact the UHIP office immediately upon their arrival. UHIP coverage is mandatory for all international students and their dependent family members while they study in Canada. UHIP ensures you can access provincial healthcare in Ontario as an international student.

Students’ UHIP coverage and fees will be activated automatically again for the period January – August 2021. If border restrictions continue, we will provide more information in January 2021 about how to dis-enroll for the winter semester if you are unable to travel to Ontario.

If you are studying remotely from within Canada but outside of Ontario, please contact us at uhip.information@utoronto.ca. Include your student number and use the subject line: “Remote Study in Canada – Outside Ontario”.
