Effective September 2017, the Province of New Brunswick made international students who meet certain criteria eligible for the Provincial Medicare program. This program is administered by the Province of New Brunswick.
For the protection of international students unfamiliar with the Province’s application and/or approval process, and for those international students whom are for any reason ineligible, the College will continue to offer its own health insurance through a third-party service provider.
This document provides guidance with regard to the administration and interaction of these two health insurance programs.
Pursuant to s. 2.8.4(b) of Policy 2331 (Tuition and Other Student Fees), "Subject to eligibility requirements of NBCC, international students admitted to a program shall be charged a health insurance fee at the rate approved by NBCC and as may be amended from time to time. Eligibility requirements and other information shall be available to students via a public website. Insurance fees are collected on behalf of the service provider and shall not represent a material ongoing revenue or loss to NBCC." This guideline supplements this section of that Policy.
This section not required.
