HEALTH CARE AT HUMBER

To ensure that all international students at Humber have access to basic health care while studying at Humber, health care insurance is mandatory for all international students. For all full-time, fee-paying, international students, the cost of this basic health care insurance is included within the tuition fees.

COVERAGE UPON ARRIVAL

Travel Insurance

Humber coverage is effective only from the first day of classes, not from your date of arrival in Canada. Therefore, if you arrive before the start of classes, it is strongly recommended that you purchase travel insurance, including health care insurance, to cover yourself until the first official day of classes.

COVERAGE WHILE YOU ARE AT HUMBER

Full-Time Students

As a full-time paid international student, you will be covered under the college health insurance plan from the first day of classes once confirmation is received that your full-time tuition fees have been paid. The health care insurance is a basic package that is subject to change on an annual basis. It is important to emphasize that not all conditions are covered.


Part-Time Students

International students who drop to part-time study status will be charged for the health care insurance plan.

If you are enrolled at Humber as a part-time student, it is mandatory that you are covered under the college health insurance plan. Your MyHumber account will be charged the insurance fee.

Review Your Coverage

International students are strongly urged to review this coverage information and purchase additional insurance coverage as appropriate. If you have any questions, please contact a Humber International Student Advisor (ISA) in the International Office.

This health insurance coverage is for international students only. It does not include or cover spouses or children. If you have a spouse and/or dependents, you may wish to pay a supplemental fee in order to cover them. Payment for adding family members must be made within the first 30 days of when you are added to the plan. You can email an International Student Advisor before you arrive at Humber for a quote on the cost for a supplemental plan.

HSF HEALTH AND DENTAL INSURANCE

Full-time international students are also covered by the Humber Students’ Federation (HSF) Health and Dental Insurance Plan.

THE HUMBER HEALTH CENTRE

Health & Counselling services at Humber are confidential and available to all registered students. Our goal is to promote student success by providing care that supports well-being.
