Compulsory International Health Insurance (IHI)

The McGill International Health Insurance Plan is mandatory for all international students. 

McGill requires all international students and their accompanying dependents to participate in the compulsory McGill International Health Insurance 2016-2017 which is administered by International Student Services. For more information on who is covered please visit here

For new and returning students you must be registered for at least one course for a minimum of 24 hours in order to confirm your contract on Minerva.

Exchange students who require a reassessment of the international health insurance fee, must confirm their coverage on Minerva. See more details here. Students who meet certain criteria may be eligible for an exemption. Please note that, students covered by private health insurance are not exempt from the McGill plan.
