Seneca student


Announcement to all international students:

Starting Fall 2015, you will have improved health insurance while studying at Seneca which will include eyeglass and dental coverage.

After receiving many requests to increase the coverage of your mandatory health insurance, Seneca has created a new insurance plan for International Students (professional and ELI). In addition to greater coverage, there is now 24-hour customer support.

In order to provide this increased coverage, the fee for insurance will increase by approximately $11 in January 2016.

Information on the new health coverage will be posted in the next few weeks.

If you have a pending insurance claim to submit for services prior to Sept. 1, 2015, submit it to C-HIP, our previous insurance provider.


Health Insurance

All international students have mandatory health insurance covered in their tuition fee.

For current international students who becomes part-time students for academic or personal reasons, or stays in Canada during a four month semester break, must obtain their own health insurance.

Health Insurance Coverage

Your health insurance includes services such as hospital and doctor services in Ontario, diagnostic laboratory and x-ray services, eye examinations, emergency services, and medically necessary dental care in hospital. The plan provides for doctor’s services, and hospital ward accommodation.

The plan also includes prescribed drugs, paramedical services (physiotherapist, chiropractor), and emergency Out-of-Province/Country coverage (limited).
