Insurance Coverage

Health and Dental Plan

Polytechnique Montréal's student associations offer a complementary health, vision and dental insurance plan to students in degree programs, which you are automatically enrolled in. Exchange students and students in a master's integration term are not eligible for this insurance coverage. 

Change-of-Coverage & Opt-Out Period
The associated fees are added to your tuition on your account statement. If you wish, you may withdraw your coverage.

IMPORTANT: Mandatory Medical Insurance for International Students

Quebec law mandates that all foreign nationals within its borders have adequate medical insurance coverage. By default, all international students are automatically enrolled in the health and hospitalization insurance plan for international students (ASHEE). This coverage is mandatory unless the recipient obtains an exemption (Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Luxemburg, Norway, Portugal, Sweden and Romania).

ASHEE covers the student alone. If you are accompanied by dependents, you must contract a separate medical insurance plan for the other members of your family. 


As a student registered in a part-time or full-time study program, you are automatically enrolled in accident insurance. For international students, this insurance is additional to the compulsory health insurance.
