According to Gallivan: International students can now claim for eligible health services received in their home country for the upcoming benefit year. Claims for services eligible under your Student Health & Dental Plan, made from a student’s home country, with a date of service during the benefit year are eligible for reimbursement. Travel benefits are excluded.
The benefits will be paid based on the existing insurance policy according to the terms of the contract with all reimbursements, maximums, physician requirements, fee guide, frequencies, policy details, etc. remaining in force. Claims can be submitted using a standard claim form once the student is back in Canada. If a student has registered for Groupnet with a Canadian bank account, they will be able to submit claims electronically from their home country. All claims will be paid in Canadian Funds.
