Medical insurance coverage

Medical insurance

All foreign students attending the UdeM are automatically signed up for group medical insurance. The cost of this mandatory insurance is added to the tuition (cost for school year 2016-2017: 81$/month, so 972/year$). Students cannot withdraw from the plan by taking out Medical insurance coverage abroad, unless they belong to one of the categories described in the “Exemptions from contributions”. The plan covers medical and hospital fees and prescription drugs. It does not cover dental care or glasses. The plan also includes a repatriation clause in the event of death or incapacity. In addition, only students enrolled at the UdeM are covered: dependents must take out private insurance.
