Services not covered by health care insurance
There are services that may not be covered by AHCIP or UAHIP and will need to be paid for by the patient. These services can include travel consultations, cosmetic surgery, ambulance services, dental care, and eye glasses/contact lenses.
Your health care coverage may also only partially cover services in certain circumstances (i.e. physiotherapy).
Check the AHCIP and UAHIP websites for more information on health care coverage.
Undergraduate and Graduate Student Health Plans
Student health care plans are private insurance plans that insure medical services not covered by provincial health insurance plans or UAHIP. Students are automatically enrolled for these insurance plans and the cost is assessed through tuition. Students may opt out of this plan if they have other insurance coverage.
This insurance will cover costs associated with physiotherapy, dental services, eye exams, eye glasses and contact lenses, and prescription drugs.
