Graduate fees include The University of Toronto Graduate Student Union's (UTGSU) benefit plan.The UTGSU Supplementary Health and Dental Plan provides students with unique health benefits. The Plan was designed to provide many important services and cover expenses such as prescription drugs, health practitioners, medical equipment, travel health coverage, which are not covered by a basic health-care plan (i.e. OHIP) or the equivalent (such as UHIP for international students). More information about the UTGSU benefit coverage, including coverage period, family coverage and claim forms are available on the health and dental section of the UTGSU website.
International students have to purchase a mandatory medical insurance, the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP). International students are automatically enrolled in UHIP each year when they enroll in courses on ACORN. Consult the International Student Centre at UTSC to learn about your UHIP coverage, including about how to submit a claim form .
