The Province of New Brunswick, NBCC and NBCC Student Union (NBCCSU) have worked to provide students of the College a comprehensive approach to Health and Dental insurance.
NBCCSU founded their Supplemental Health & Dental Insurance through a student referendum. It is a plan established by students for students.
All international students are required to have valid international medical insurance while they are studying with NBCC and will be automatically enrolled in the Guard.me during the first academic term of study each year. Charges for this plan are $600 annually.
Students in their first term of study of their academic year, can request an opt out from the Guard.me medical insurance plan if they can answer YES to one of the following questions.
If your New Brunswick Medicare coverage expires before the last day of study for your current academic year, an opt out is NOT available, and it is your responsibility to ensure you reapply for New Brunswick Medicare in advance of its expiry.
Opt Out Request Form
Students who have successfully opted out of the Guard.me medical insurance plan will be automatically enrolled in the Guard.me Excursion Plan. The cost of the Guard.me Excursion Plan will be $64.50 for the calendar year. This plan is mandatory regardless of other insurance coverage. Adjustments to the student account will be made within 10 business days of the opt out request received prior to the last day to opt out in accordance with the Academic Calendar.
New Brunswick Medicare is available to full-time international students who are studying at New Brunswick post-secondary institutions. Domestic students are already enrolled in the program and need take no further action.
International students must apply for this coverage through the Province directly: Details on the application process will be posted on the Department of Health’s Medicare website.
