NBCC is proud to provide all international students with the GuardMe insurance plan. This plan is mandatory for all incoming international students. NBCC strongly recommends all international students maintain this coverage throughout their studies in case emergency medical assistance is required. For more information on this plan, please visit our website at the link below.
Enrollment in the GuardMe insurance plan will take place on Monday before the first day of classes of a student’s first term. Upon enrollment, students will receive an enrollment notice from GuardMe containing details about their coverage dates and options to opt out. Students will also receive their policy number and be able to download their coverage card after the opt out deadline each term (see below).
Optional Dependent Coverage: A student can choose to enroll their dependents in this plan by contacting GuardMe after the opt out deadline has passed and they have received their policy number. Should a student need to enroll their dependents prior to that date, they should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Optional Opt-Out: Opt-out requests will be received for 10 days at the beginning of a student’s first and second term of study in each academic year. Please review the Academic Calendar for deadlines.
Opt-out requests must be submitted via the link below during the opt-out period and include proof of valid New Brunswick Medicare coverage.
Fee Adjustments: Students who successfully opt-out of the GuardMe insurance plan will receive a credit to their student account within 45 days of the opt-out deadline.
All students with an active New Brunswick Medicare card are required to have the Annual Excursion policy as it will cover travel-related expenses that Medicare will not. Therefore, students cannot be excluded from this part of the coverage.
