It is very important that all international students have health insurance for the entire time they are studying at Cap. Without health insurance, you could pay thousands of dollars for a hospital stay and even be refused certain services. For students who will be living in British Columbia longer than 6 months, you will be expected to apply for BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) upon arriving in BC. There is a 3 month waiting period for newcomers to BC before medical coverage will take effect and you should have temporary health insurance for the duration of this 3 month waiting period. During this period, students are required to purchase private interim coverage provided by guard.me. The costs of this plan are $2.00 per day. The CIE registers students for this plan.
Detailed information for international students can be found on the health and dental insurance info sheet. (pdf)
If you are planning on living in B.C. for longer
than 6 months, upon arrival in B.C you are required to apply for the Medical Services Plan (MSP) of B.C. New international students will be able to complete an application form at the
International Student Orientation.
Medical services covered by
The Centre for International Experience (CIE) at Capilano
U will automatically enroll every new international student in the temporary, mandatory
medical coverage offered by Guard.me at a cost of $2.00 per day. If you already have the MSP of BC, please bring it to the CIE office in the Library Building, LB
127 when you arrive to Capilano University.
