Health and Wellness

To ensure international students have access to health care while studying at Sheridan CCTT, health insurance coverage is mandatory and the cost is included in the tuition fees. Registered students will be automatically enrolled into a health insurance policy provided by guard.me insurance. The policy is for urgent, emergency based coverage and is valid all over the world except for the student’s country of origin. 

Health Insurance Card

You will receive a welcome email from the health insurance provider, guard.me, on your Sheridan College email within a month of the start of the term with an attached file of your health insurance card. Once you receive the email, please make sure to create an account on the guard.me website, per the instructions provided in the email. Your username will be your Sheridan College email. You will need to create a separate password for your gurad.me account. 

Submitting a Claim

When you seek medical care, you will either be asked to pay upfront for any fees or the medical care facility will directly bill the insurance provider, guard.me. 

If you go to a medical care facility that does not have direct billing with guard.me and you pay for any eligible medical services, you must keep your receipts and submit a claim to guard.me to be reimbursed for what you paid. Claims can be submitted through your guard.me account.
