K If you get behind in your MSP payments, any payments you make will be used to pay the months you were not covered. K If you do not pay your monthly fee, you do not have insurance. Care Card If you are registered with MSP, you will receive a ‘British Columbia Care Card’ in the mail. þ A Care Card is embossed with your registration number. The registration number is used to determine the status of your insurance. º Your Care Card will show an expiry date the same as your Study Permit. Each time you receive a new Study Permit, you will need to extend your MSP coverage. þ Carry your Care Card at all times. It must be presented to health care officials at the time that you are receiving care. Evacuation Insurance If you are sick and desire, or require, medical service in your home country, you are going to need a means of transportation. Evacuation Insurance provides the financial support to make that travel possible. K Please see the International Education Department for more information.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
