The Internationalization Office is no longer accepting opt-outs or opt-ins to the Foreign Health Insurance for the Winter 2017 semester, as the deadline was
Thursday January 19, 2017 at 5pm NLST.
The next semester to opt out or into the Foreign Health Insurance will be Spring 2017.
You are eligible to opt out from our insurance plan if one of these statements applies to you:
Please note that health insurance plans from outside of Canada will not be accepted as alternate coverage.
In order to cancel your Foreign Health insurance you must complete an Opt Out Form and provide the necessary proof to the IO before January 19, 2017 5pm NL. Once this form is submitted and approved, your opt out of the Foreign Health Insurance is valid for one academic year (from September- August), meaning it will expire the end of August, and you must complete a new opt out form every September that you are a registered student.
You are eligible to cancel your Foreign Health Insurance and transfer your insurance to a student union plan if one of these statements applies to you:
Please note, there is a different process for students who are on a work term, who wish to transfer their insurance for the first time, scroll down for more information.
In order to transfer your insurance, you must complete an opt-out form and provide a copy of your MCP card to the IO before January 19, 2017 5pm NL. To transfer insurances, you only need to complete this Opt Out Form one time. This means that for the remainder of your studies at Memorial your insurance coverage will be with the student union that serves you and you must abide by the regulations surrounding that coverage (Remember, this does not apply to students on a work term who have transfered their insurance).
