Terms and Conditions
- By agreeing to this Pre-authorized Credit and Debit Card Service, you acknowledge that authorization is provided for the benefit of the international student health fee (Health Fee), Revenue Services of British Columbia (RSBC) and your Card Issuer and is provided in consideration of your Card Issuer agreeing to process charges to the credit or debit card (Card) that you have provided to us.
- The amount to be charged to your Card may vary as the Health Fee is subject to change. RSBC and your Card Issuer will process charges against your Card without any pre-notification from RSBC, or consent by you.

- Your Card will be charged on the 15th of each month or, when the 15th is on a weekend or statutory holiday, on the next business day.

- If you or RSBC terminate this Agreement, only the payment method is affected; your health coverage under the Health Fee account will not be terminated.

Signing this application provides authorization for the benefit of the Province of British Columbia and our financial institution and is provided in consideration of your bank agreeing to process debits against the bank account indicated on the front of this form (hereafter referred to as "your account") in accordance with the rules of Payments Canada. For more information, visit Payments Canada at www.payments.ca/paying-pre-authorized-debit
The International Student Health Fee (ISHF) must be paid in the usual manner until you are notified that your pre-authorized debit (PAD) arrangement is in effect. If your account is in arrears, the first PAD withdrawal will include any outstanding health fees, dishonoured banking instrument fees and your current health fee.
The PAD amount may vary as health fees are subject to change and the amount may include an amount for overdue health fees or a dishonoured banking instrument fee. Revenue Services of British Columbia and your bank will process debits against your account and withdraw all such amounts without pre-notification to you as required by Payments Canada, Rule H1.
Revenue Services of British Columbia will issue a billing invoice, prior to the monthly withdrawal date, mailed to the address associated with the ISHF account if there is an adjustment (debit or credit), a non-sufficient funds (NSF) charge or a rate change in the monthly health fee.
The ISHF PAD withdrawal will take place on the 28th of each month or, when the 28th is on a weekend or statutory holiday, on the next business day. The agreement will continue until the ISHF account is closed or the agreement is cancelled by you or Revenue Services of British Columbia.
Any pre-authorized payment dishonoured by your bank may result in a dishonoured banking instrument service fee being applied to the ISHF account. Neither Revenue Services of British Columbia nor the Province of British Columbia is responsible for any additional service fees charged by your bank.
The PAD plan will be cancelled by Revenue Services of British Columbia after two consecutive monthly pre-authorized withdrawals are dishonoured by your bank due to NSF or "Funds Not Cleared," or if a pre-authorized withdrawal is returned for any other reason or if the ISHF account is closed due to your withdrawal from the Medical Services Plan.
You will be notified of any returned payment or cancellation of this agreement by Revenue Services of British Columbia by written notice to the current address on your account.
You may cancel this authorization by notifying Revenue Services of British Columbia at least 21 calendar days in advance of the next pre-authorized debit withdrawal. Failure to provide required cancellation notice may result in a service charge fee if the payment is dishonoured.
You have the right to dispute any debit that does not comply with this "Personal PAD" agreement. For example, you have the right to receive reimbursement for any debit that is not authorized or is not consistent with this PAD agreement. To understand your recourse rights, contact your bank or visit Payments Canada's website.
Neither the termination of the pre-authorized debit plan by Revenue Services of British Columbia nor cancellation of this authorization by you terminates British Columbia health coverage under the ISHF program; only the method of payment is affected.
For your security, we store only enough payment information for you to identify the payment method - your full card or bank account number and security code are not stored on this website.
