I'm Canadian and will be attending UCD come September... I'm wondering what other international students are doing for health insurance? The VHI that UCD recommends is crazy expensive. Are there other options? What plan/company are you with?

Do you have a Canadian credit card with all of the insurance perks - travel and emergency health? If you buy your round trip airline ticket for the fall with a return in the spring each year, you should be covered (some plans - not all and some only for a small period of time, but nonetheless something!).

I found a company that quoted around $250 per year, this is the best I have found so far, it's for canadians who are covered under their provincial health care system, so it's less that an american would pay.
