University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP)

The University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) was created in 1994 to provide affordable insurance to pay the cost of the hospital and medical services that students or employees at participating universities and colleges in Ontario and their families might need to maintain their health while in Canada. The Plan provides coverage comparable to that of OHIP for Ontario residents. UHIP is mandatory for all McMaster University students, employees, and dependents of students and employees who do not have OHIP coverage.
