If you are registered in Adventure Sport Certificate, Adventure Management Diploma and Adventure Guide Diploma, PB Dip in Adventure IF they have a fall field course you need the extra medical insurance for the first three months.
you have adequate medical insurance is your responsibility but TRU World
aims to assist you in arranging insurance that adequately covers the high risk
activities that may be engaging in as part of your program. Please note that
while we will do everything we can to assist you, we cannot take any
responsibility for it.
Students in BC are eligible for Medical Service Plan (BC Government Medical Insurance), but it is only effective from the fourth month of your arrival in BC.
Until then, all international students must have medical insurance that will cover them for any medical expenses. TRU World has purchased private medical insurance coverage on behalf of most of the new international students through Guard.Me untill the MSP coverage starts.
However, for students in “Adventure Sport Certificate”, ”Adventure Management Diploma”, “Adventure Guide Diploma” or “BTM, Adventure Studies’ Program” the Guard.Me insurance is inadequate coverage because it specifically excludes some of high risk activities. Thus, you must purchase other private medical insurance that will cover the high risk activities until MSP kicks in.
We have looked into your insurance needs and according to BCAA (http://www.bcaa.com), their policy “Visitors to Canada” may be a good option if you have not yet purchased any other medical insurance that covers high risk activities.
Here is what we recommend you do…
If you do NOT currently have insurance:
If you already have insurance:
Good luck with your studies.
