International Student Services
Healthcare systems are different from one country to another. At first, you may be confused when trying to understand how to access healthcare in Canada and what your insurance covers.
All registered international students are automatically enrolled in the Foreign Health Insurance plan. For information on coverage and making a claim, you can
log into the insurance providers website using your policy ID.
Your policy ID is emailed to your @mun.ca account the end of the first month of every semester by the insurance provider, Guard Me International.
Full-time international graduate students are also automatically enrolled in the Graduate Student Union (GSU) dental plan.
For information on this, visit their website.
Automatic coverage does not apply to dependents of students, postdocs or visiting scholars/faculty.
Information on opting into the Foreign Health Insurance is available online.
You might be eligible for public health care offered through the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador called MCP or
Medical Care Plan.
You may also meet eligibility requirements to
opt out of the Foreign Health Insurance and/or transfer into one of the student union plans.
It is important to understand your health insurance coverage and the health care system in Canada. That is why when you arrive to Newfoundland, you must attend the mandatory international student orientation or
meet with Patrick Arsenault to discuss your coverage.
More resources like the current Guard Me policy and coverage information are available on Brightspace.
