UHIP Reimbursement


The University Health Insurance Plan is a mandatory insurance program designed to pay the cost of the hospital and medical services that international students and employees may need during their stay in Canada while at the University. For more information on UHIP, visit the Student Financial Services website. The University and CUPE 3913 have negotiated reimbursement of UHIP premiums for employees holding at least one CUPE 3913 work assignment while insured.


To be eligible for UHIP reimbursement, an employee must be enrolled in UHIP through Student Financial Services and have paid fees for the current year. The total amount of UHIP reimbursements through this program is capped at $100,000. As such, employees may not be reimbursed the full amount of the premium they paid. Students who are fully funded by an external agency are not eligible for UHIP reimbursement.

Reimbursement Process

Reimbursement is automatic and does not require an application. Reimbursements are normally processed during the second month of each semester and will appear on your pay as a negative amount in the deductions section of your pay record (pay records can be accessed online on the Human Resources website).

I didn't receive my UHIP reimbursement. What should I do?

Please be patient. UHIP reimbursements are generally processed during the second month of each semester. If you have not recieved your UHIP reimbursement by the end of the first semester in which you held a work assignment, please contact Vicki Isotamm.
