New virtual health care service for international students

Attention international students

We’d like to share some important information about your College International Health Insurance Plan (CIHIP). Starting today, we’re introducing a new online service, Dialogue, to help you get the care you need to empower you to be proactive about your health, especially during this difficult time. Dialogue is an online platform that allows you, as well as your spouse and children who are also enrolled in CIHIP, to connect virtually with nurses and physicians via a mobile or web app from anywhere in Canada, free of charge.
