Exemptions for diplomats
Conditions for Exemptions
To be exempted from the HEC Montréal health insurance plan, you must have a diplomatic visa in Canada, for example because one of your parents holds a diplomatic position in Canada, and satisfies one of the following conditions:
- You are covered by the RAMQ (Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec - Québec Health Insurance Board) or the Medicare plan of another Canadian province, based on your diplomatic status.
- You are covered by a health insurance plan provided by your diplomatic status that includes medical and hospital expenses.
The School health insurance premium will be refunded if presentation of RAMQ (or of the Medicare plan of another Canadian province) insurance proof is provided before the deadline.
- If you are covered by the RAMQ or the Medicare plan of another province, you must contact the diplomatic mission in charge of your stay to obtain an agreement from the Quebec International Relations Ministry, or its equivalent in another province. You will then need to present the document that proves your eligibility for the Medicare regime to the Zone info (Decelles, 2.260) before the student fees payment deadline specified on the academic calendar. Then you will be able to obtain your refund from the Registrar's Office.
- If you are covered by a specific regime, you are required to secure a certificate of insurance with your name, coverage period and a summary of benefits before you leave your home country. If benefits are not mentioned on the certificate, you must have a copy of your insurance policy where they appear. You will then need to present these documents to the Zone info (Decelles, 2.260) before the student fees payment deadline specified on the academic calendar. Then you will be able to obtain your refund from the Registrar's Office.
