Coverage for students in full-time Post-Secondary programs

As of the Fall 2020 semester, Health Insurance is billed on an annual basis. 

 

Students starting Fall 2020 will be invoiced for the full year of coverage (September 1, 2020 to August 31, 2021).


Students starting Winter 2021 will be invoiced (pro-rated) for coverage for the remaining months of the academic year (January 1, 2021 to August 31, 2021). 


Students starting Summer 2021 will be invoiced (pro-rated) for coverage for the remaining months of the academic year (May 1, 2021 to August 31, 2021).


If your program continues in September 2021, that is the beginning of the billing cycle for the next academic year. 

  • Note: Students who graduate continue to be covered by Morcare until the end of their current academic year (i.e. August 31, 2021). However, coverage ends if a student withdraws from Fanshawe.   

Coverage for students in EAP (English for Academic Purposes)

  • Students pay for coverage two months at a time and have the option to purchase coverage between EAP terms and the start of a post-secondary program.
  • For example, if your EAP term starts in September and ends in October, you have coverage for the entire month of September and October.
  • Note:  You have the option to purchase coverage from Morcare within three business days of the end of your EAP term, if you are returning to Fanshawe for a post-secondary program. Please come to the International Centre to make this request (Room E2025).  Coverage should be purchased for gaps in studies between EAP and post-secondary programs if you remain in Canada.

Early Arrival Coverage

Insurance shall commence 30 days prior to the policy effective date.  Early arrival coverage applies to first-year students only.  This is a one-time benefit that applies to medical services.


Examples of services covered (medically required):  walk-in clinic, emergency room, blood tests, x-rays, medical exams required by your Fanshawe program of study.
