Students covered by CIHIP have access to HI (Virtual Health Care, provided by Dialogue). This online platform empowers you to be proactive about your health by allowing you to virtually connect with nurses and physicians via a mobile or web app from anywhere in Canada. Click here for details.
Please note: Eligible international students living abroad can also consult a nurse or doctor through Dialogue for any health-related questions via chat, video, or phone. Specialist referrals and drug prescriptions are not available outside of Canada.
