Family Coverage

Each Fall semester, for a limited period of time, from September 19 to September 30, (for new winter semester students from January 18 to January 31) you are given the opportunity to purchase family coverage for your spouse and/or dependant(s) by completing the opt-in form and the fee payment.

Your family can only be covered while you are a student on the plan.


IMPORTANT: These fees are in addition to the student health and dental fee.

2017 - 2018 Family Health & Dental Fees:
One dependent $520.00
Two or more dependents $780.00

Please note: Your optional family add-on is not automatically renewed. In order for your family add on to continue, you must purchase the coverage each benefit year before the applicable deadline. FAMILY ADD-ON FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

Spouse means the person who is a resident of Canada, and who is married to the student, or a person of either sex who has continuously co-habitated (common law) with the student for a period of at least one year and who is publicly represented as the student's wife or husband.

Dependent means an unmarried child who is a resident of Canada, and entirely dependent on the student for maintenance and support.

An unmarried child age 21 or over must either be:
1. a full-time student under age 25; or
2. incapacitated for a continuous period beginning:
a) before age 21; or
b) while a full time student and before age 25

To add family coverage to your Student Health and Dental plan submit the completed Family Add-On Form, along with the required fees before the established deadline to the DSU Office.
