Student Medical Insurance - Plan for International Students
Ideal for: Foreign students enrolled in a registered Canadian school

Welcome. Bienvenue. Willkommen. Benvenuto. Bienvenido.
Why do I need Student Medical Insurance?

As an international student, you may not be eligible for any government coverage and the costs of medical and dental treatment, for people without Canadian health insurance plans, are expensive. While attending a Canadian academic institution, the last thing on your mind should be the high price of medical services, so be sure to add Travel Underwriters’ Student Medical Insurance to your list of school supplies.

Don’t get caught without medical insurance—it could cost you more than your education.

Real-life example
An 18–year–old hockey player from Finland was attending school in Canada. After a game, he complained of a massive headache. He began vomiting and was taken to the ER where doctors discovered a brain aneurysm. He required emergency surgery and spent several days in the ICU before transferred to a regular ward. The player’s father flew out from Finland to be with his son during his two-week hospitalization.
Without Student Medical Insurance, his out–of–pocket costs would have totalled: $57,456.52
