Good day, I am an international student, and I recently got OHIP through my wife as she has an open work permit. I also have private health insurance from my school. However, I asked my school if they could remove the private health insurance as I already have my OHIP coverage until I graduate, and they said that it is not possible as it is required on my study permit. In my understanding, I already have health insurance through OHIP, so another health insurance is not necessary.

Kindly confirm if it's true that they can't remove private health insurance.

Thank you!

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

It is best that you contact the IRCC Client Support Centre directly for this information, you may also want to contact them via webform if you prefer to communicate online and to have a written response to show your school administration regarding whether or not health insurance or UHIP is mandatory as an international student.

We hope this information is helpful, please follow up with us if you have any additional questions.

Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org team
