Medical Insurance

Why do I need to apply for medical insurance?

Medical or dental treatment in Canada is not free. All ACATCM international students need to have adequate insurance to cover any medical care or accidents while they are in Canada.

What are my options for medical insurance?

If you are studying in Canada for more than 12 months, you are eligible to register for the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP), the basic insurance coverage for all Albertans. This plan is free of charge and covers visits to the doctor, lab costs, hospital costs if you are admitted to hospital. Detailed instruction can be found here: https://www.alberta.ca/ahcip-registry-locations.aspx?utm_source=redirector

AHCIP does not cover:

  • Prescription drugs
  • Rehabilitation needs
  • Dental services
  • Ambulance transport

At ACATCM, students are eligible to receive 10 free acupuncture treatments per academic year.
