Attention Students: Are You Covered?

Please notify the Health Services Administration Office if you plan to be out of the NWT for more than 90 days at a time by providing a completed Temporary Absence Form.

This notification will help to avoid delays in payment for any necessary medical services that you may receive while you are temporarily out-of-territory or out-of-country.

If you are going to a post-secondary school outside of the NWT, please include with the completed Temporary Absence Form, documentation that shows you are enrolled full time (as defined by the school) or a copy of the Student Financial Assistance approval.

If you have any questions, please call the Health Services Administration Office at the Department of Health and Social Services toll free at 1-800-661-0830 or email healthcarecard@gov.nt.ca.
