International students


All international students who study in Canada are required to have health insurance. Without adequate medical insurance, you will have to pay the full cost of any medical treatments, which can be very expensive.

As of Sept. 1, 2021, international students will have coverage with the Saitsa health and dental plan. It provides coverage for day-to-day needs, including prescription drugs, counselling, select dental services, massage therapy and more. This is a comprehensive insurance plan designed to secure your health and financial well-being from possible medical emergency treatment costs while you’re pursuing your education.


What happens to my current coverage with Study Insured?

If you’re currently insured with Study Insured, the program allows for up to 12 months after the end of a policy for claim documents to be received. Claims must be incurred during the policy period.


Notice of claim after your policy ends

Study Insured must receive your claim within twelve months of the date your policy ended. Study Insured will not pay any claim received more than twelve months after the date your policy ended, regardless of when the eligible expense was incurred.


For any specific questions related to Study Insured, please email sait@studyinsured.com.
