Private Medical Insurance: ISEP
ISEP students are automatically charged a non-refundable $180 fee as part of their first term tuition and are enrolled in 3 months of Guard.me insurance. The insurance will begin on the date of your ISEP placement exam and your Guard.me card and policy details will be emailed to your my.bcit.ca email address.
We highly recommend that you arrange for additional temporary private medical insurance to cover you for any time that you will spend in Canada before your ISEP placement exam. You can purchase for a discounted rate of $2 per day. Please note that you must use your @my.bcit.ca email address when purchasing Guard.me insurance online, the minimum purchase is $20, and all online Guard.me purchases are non-refundable.
If you already have BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) or medical insurance coverage from a private insurance provider, you may be able to opt out of Guard.me insurance coverage by presenting your medical insurance information at your Placement Test. See Opt Out for more information.
