Health insurance

Immigration Quebec regulations require that all international students be covered by a health insurance plan that meets government standards, while studying in Quebec. In keeping with this government directive, Concordia University has negotiated a compulsory health and accident insurance plan with Blue Cross at a competitive cost that all Concordia international students must have. Consequently, personal health insurance plans are not accepted. Students may opt to take couple or family coverage at an additional cost.

Students can pick up a Health Insurance card at the ISO after they have registered for courses. Please download and review your Blue Cross Health Insurance Policy Booklet carefully for the details of your coverage. A printed copy of your Policy Booklet will be also given at the Health Insurance Information sessions. Blue Cross also offers additional services

Health insurance fees are charged automatically when students register for courses. The annual coverage is from September 1 to August 31. Read the message from Vigilis Group, the Plan Administrator, about 2016-2017 rate increase.

Where should I go if I need medical assistance?

Concordia Health Services has compiled a list of Community Medical Clinics and After Hours Care. Some clinics will charge a fee to open a new file. This fee will not be covered by your health insurance.
