Enrolment  /  Extend iMED

Students currently covered by iMED ,who are not eligible for MSP may extend their iMED coverage if they will remain registered UBC students during the extension period.

To apply, submit the iMED extension application form (with a new rate for extensions beginning on or after August 1, 2020) to DCIS with your payment.

Please note:

  • If your iMED coverage has already expired, your new coverage will begin on the date we receive your extension application and payment.
  • Extension of iMED coverage is not offered for personal vacation / leisure travel after completion of a student's UBC study term. DCIS offers other medical insurance options for leisure travel in Canada, USA, and other worldwide destinations.
  • On a case by case basis, extension of iMED may be available for students who need extra coverage for a reasonable number of days to wrap up personal effects in BC and for their transit back to their home country.
