Managing your Account

Enrollment in the Medical Services Plan is mandatory for international students. Fees are invoiced monthly, subsequent to the coverage month. You may pay in advance for any amount. Advance payments do not protect against premium rate changes. Any credit you have on your account that qualifies for a refund may be applied to any outstanding account you have with the Province of British Columbia.
