International Students

International students are required to have medical insurance and this insurance pays the cost associated with most consultations and most prescriptions. 

As of May 2018, Toi Ohomai international students are expected to pay $65.00 before the time of the consultation with the doctor. It is the international student's responsibility to apply for reimbursement through their health insurance provider.

Te Whare Hauora – Health Centre is happy to explain the new process to international students. Seeing the nurse is free for all students at Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology.
