Health and Wellness
UBC strongly recommends that all domestic and international students have basic and extended health insurance for the full duration of your studies.
- The BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) provides basic medical benefits. Everyone living in British Columbia for more than six months is required to enroll in MSP, except students with existing coverage from another Canadian province or territory.
You can find more information on MSP for students here: https://students.ubc.ca/health/health-insurance
- You will be automatically enrolled in the AMS/GSS Health and Dental Plan, which provides extended health and dental insurance. You can opt out of this plan if you are covered by another program. Full details on this program can be found here: https://www.ams.ubc.ca/student-services/health-dental/
- International students are required to register in the iMed program, which provides temporary health insurance to cover your eligibility period for MSP.
