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 will be charged $300 for their first Academic Term to ensure guard.me coverage while they apply to the Province’s Medicare Program (or in the event they are denied for any reason).
Students who have not obtained proof of New Brunswick Medicare coverage by the "Last Day to Opt Out of Student Health and Dental or guard.me Plans with proof of coverage" found on the Academic Calendar will be charged an additional $300 for the second term of guard.me coverage.
If you have proof of Medicare coverage, you must apply to 'opt out' of the guard.me plan prior to NBCC’s deadline (refer to Academic Calendar for dates) using the “Opt Out” option on the Guard.Me NBCC website.
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. It is essential that all international students receive the same insurance coverage while attending NBCC, therefore students are not able to be excluded from this coverage. The cost is $64.50 for an entire year of coverage.

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.
