Important Notice Regarding Health Insurance Coverage
For Students in Canada
March 26, 2015
Dear Libyan Students in Canada,
As you know, CBIE recently received the 2015 Quarter 1 MLA, which has now been processed to all eligible students in Canada. This is a positive indicator, and we are now working with key stakeholders to receive the 2015 Quarter 2 MLA budget.
As noted in our January 16, 2015 update, however, there are other major budgets that continue to be delayed, including tuition and insurance. Therefore today’s message is intended to give you further details regarding your health insurance coverage.
Taking into account the fact that CBIE has not received the required health insurance budget from the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research since August 2014, regretfully ManuLife Financial will be terminating the policy at midnight on April 30, 2015.
As you may know, the health insurance coverage for the Libyan sponsored students in the US was terminated as of March 1, 2015. We have also learned that some Cultural Offices abroad have taken similar measures due to the current challenges in Libya resulting in delays in receiving required budgets.
CBIE is in communication with all key stakeholders, including the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the Ministry of Finance, the Central Bank of Libya, and the Embassy of Libya in Ottawa to expedite the transfer of the required funds.
Next week CBIE will be providing you with the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document aimed at offering students helpful information on alternative healthcare coverage options available in Canada.
Should there be any new developments in the status of the health insurance budget transfer, CBIE will inform you accordingly. However, based on the current funding situation, it is important for students to understand that ManuLife Financial cannot extend the health insurance coverage past April 30, 2015, and therefore students should plan ahead accordingly.
