International Health Insurance

International health insurance is included in your program fees

You must have health insurance to cover the cost of medical care while you are studying with us. To assist you, St. Lawrence College has negotiated the purchase of medical insurance for international students to obtain the most comprehensive coverage at the best cost.

To be covered as soon as you arrive in Canada, you must:

  • Pay your student fees
  • Sign up and enroll in the guard.me insurance program

You can easily access your guard.me insurance using the iCent app. The iCent app allows you to easily display your insurance information when necessary (e.g. getting a COVID-19 test, visiting a doctor, picking up a prescription).

Your emergency healthcare plan

Here are the steps you need to follow to use your insurance plan properly:

Go to your SLC email and find an email from Guard.me International Insurance. The subject line should be "Health Insurance Card".

Once you have found the email with your insurance card, print the card and keep it with you. We recommend you put the card in your wallet.

You will also receive a temporary password, which will allow you to access the guard.me/slc portal.

You will have to submit a claim every time you have paid for a consult and/or a prescribed medication.

You need to keep your receipts in a safe place. We recommend you take pictures of your receipts.
