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. UHIP costs and information can be viewed on the University Health Insurance Plan website (http://uhip.ca/).
If you arrive more than 20 days prior to the start date of your training, you should purchase a travel insurance policy until you are eligible for UHIP enrollment.
You must also apply for health coverage under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). There is a 3-month waiting period, during which the UHIP plan will cover you. OHIP information can be viewed on the Ontario Ministry of Health website (http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/public/programs/ohip/).
