Health and Dental Opt-Out Application

Deadline to Opt-Out of the Student Plan

30 days from the official start date of your program

Applications received after the deadline will be denied.

Opt-Out Eligibility

There are 2 circumstances in which students enrolled in the Student Health and Dental Plan may opt out: (1) when they are new students and (2) when they are returning students on the anniversary of starting an eligible full-time program.

How to Opt Out

To apply to Opt-Out, you must be enrolled in the Student Plan, meet the eligibility criteria, have proof of comparable coverage, and complete the online form before the applicable deadline.

Things to consider:
  • A parents' insurance plan ceases coverage until you turn either 18 or 21, or up to 25 if you are studying full-time at a recognized education institution.
  • You can combine two benefit plans to maximize your coverage, potentially reaching up to 100% coverage! Find out more Coordination of Benefits.
  • Students with comparable coverage can choose to opt out of the health, dental, or both plans.
  • Approval of the Student Benefits Plan Opt-Out application will result in the plan fee being refunded according to the school's policy.
  • NO EXCEPTIONS will be made if the deadline is missed. It is the student's responsibility to pay the plan's mandatory fees, should they miss the applicable opt-out deadline.

Eligibility Confirmation

Confirm your eligibility to opt out of the Student Benefits Plan by completing the following questions.

Are you a new student who has been assessed the SA Health Fee on your student account?

Are you a returning student on the anniversary of your enrollment in the Student Benefits Plan who has been assessed the SA Health fee on your student account?

The anniversary refers to when you first became eligible for the Student Plan and were assessed the fees. For instance, if you were first eligible for the Student Plan in January, your anniversary would happen every January.

Have you ever opted out of the Student Plan?

Are you covered by a comparable Health and Dental Plan from parents, spouse, work, government, or band?

The BC Medical Services Plan (MSP), the Fair PharmaCare plan, an International Emergency Plan, or the Student Plan are not acceptable as comparable insurance coverage.
