As a mandatory component of registration, you must purchase healthcare coverage under the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) at the PGME office for yourself and accompanying family members upon your arrival in Canada, or twenty (20) days before your designated training start date. Upon your arrival to Canada, please upload your signed form(s) listed below, along with your work permit and passports (including your dependent’s passports – if applicable), to the PGME Forms Site.
If you arrive more than 20 days prior to the start date of your training, you should purchase a travel insurance policy at www.coverme.ca until you are eligible for UHIP enrollment.
The Ministry of Health announced it is temporarily waiving the three-month waiting period for coverage under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) due to the COVID19 pandemic. Read the provincial government’s announcement here. This means you may only need to purchase one month of the University Health Insurance Plan upon your arrival to Canada if your enrollment in OHIP is not from your date of entrance to Canada.
