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

Full-time paid international students are covered under the college health insurance plan from the first day of classes. The insurance fee is pro-rated based on the semester you begin your studies, i.e., September, January or May. 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 health conditions are covered.

Please note: Returning students who opt to take the Fall term (September) off will not be covered until the semester they return to school.


Part-Time Students

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

This will be reflected on your MyHumber account. As a part-time student you are no longer eligible for the health benefits offered through the IGNITE health insurance program, i.e. drugs, dental and other extended health benefits.

Review Your Coverage

International students are strongly urged to review their 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 spouses or children. If you have a spouse and/or dependents, you may wish to pay a supplemental fee and purchase insurance. Arrangements for adding family members are made directly with Morcare, our health insurance provider. The option to add family members will not be available until the start of the semester. A link will appear on the landing page https://wespeakstudent.com/home/11-humber-and-guelph-humber for a limited time.

IGNITE HEALTH AND DENTAL INSURANCE

Full-time international students are also covered by IGNITE 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.
