Accessing Health Care Services

How to Use Your Health Insurance


All eligible Canadian residents and registered international students must present valid proof of health care coverage prior to receiving medical services. Upon visiting a medical service provider you will be required to present your UHIP card. If visiting a preferred provider (i.e. a provider that accepts UHIP), the health care or medical provider will record your information and bill Sun Life, the insurance provider, directly towards medical consultation fees.



In the event that you are billed for medical consultation fees, you will need to request reimbursement from Sun Life. To request reimbursement, you must complete a Claim Form and get an official receipt for services from the health care or medical provider (be sure to keep a photocopy of your bill). Completed forms must be submitted directly to Sun Life. To learn more about submitting a claim, visit the UHIP website. For additional information, please refer to the following Sun Life webcasts:


Important note: Some health care providers may charge the Ontario Medical Association rate – a significantly higher rate than UHIP or OHIP. You will be reimbursed the UHIP rate only. It is important to speak with the health care provider beforehand about medical rates.
