The chat is open to ask questions to me, however we won't take questions until the end, because most likely all your questions will be answered throughout the presentation.

D Kumar

should I have to take medical plan from our home country before landing at Manitoba?
Kelvin Oo

I will be taking the entire Winter Term remotely from my country. I have healthcare provided by my own country. Is it still compulsory for me to be enrolled under MISHP, even though I will not be requiring MISHP at all? If yes, could you please explain why?

I have braces in my teeth and I have to visit dentist every month to change the wire and get a new one. So my international dental health plan will cover that regular visit to the densist at the Winnipeg.
Mehraz Hossain Sarker
47:48
Is there any hidden option which seems like that it might be covered but in real its not? For exam: Just a regular visit( not for any problem) to a dentist? Will it be covered?

in the event that a student doesn't get study permit to come into Canada, what happens to the mishp/ Uof M H and D plans?
Rishavjot Singh

@Rebecca, you mean its not mandatory to take travel insurance, right? while taking the travel insurance is good idea.
Rishavjot Singh
56:36
Under this plan, are any regular health checkups offered?
Rebecca Irving
57:52
Hi D Kumar, yes, we can't mandate that students purchase travel health insurance - that's a personal decision. But, most students do purchase travel health insurance for their travels to Canada to ensure that they're adequately covered in the event that something goes wrong

how is UM dental/Heath insurance different from MISHOP? Given that the student is in Canada & doesn't have any 3rd party insurance - is it possible to opt out of UM dental & health insurance if MISHOP is already there.
Rebecca Irving
01:00:49
Hi Himanshi, good question! MISHP only covers your BASIC health needs, while the UMSU Health & Dental covers the additional & supplementary health costs (vision, dental, etc)
Rebecca Irving
01:00:59
They work together for your total health coverage in Canada
staniel seemon
01:01:49
Should I get both the Mishp and UMSU..?
Nishant Malik
01:02:06
thanks Rebecca, was looking for the exact explanation.
Génesis Ruiz
01:02:47
It has been probably mentioned, but how/when are we getting our health insurance ID card?
Rebecca Irving
01:02:55
Hi Staniel, you are actually charged for BOTH insurance plans through your Student Fee Account
Rebecca Irving
01:03:17
Hi Genesis, you should be receiving your MISHP card to your U of M student e-mail account at the end of January
Rishavjot Singh
01:05:09
In case of any serious accident, does this plan cover the cost of emergency surgery?
staniel seemon
01:05:25
Do I need to fill in the form and send in order to get the health card or I will be given one at the end of this month without submitting the mentioned form?
Rebecca Irving
01:05:42
Yes, Rishavjot - the MISHP plan would cover emergency costs
Rebecca Irving
01:06:20
Hi Staniel - as long as you're registered in courses for the Winter 2021 term, you will automatically be e-mailed the MISHP card at the end of January

Mehraz Hossain Sarker
01:07:47
Is there any hidden option which seems like might be covered but it actually is not? For exam: Just a regular visit( not for any problem) to a dentist?
