Opt-Out

Already have coverage?

Coordinating multiple plans: If you are an eligible student and have comparable coverage you may wish to coordinate your plans. Benefits under the two plans can be coordinated to increase your coverage up to 100% of the actual expense(s) incurred. For example, following payment under this plan you can submit outstanding balances to the other plan for consideration. Find out more about coordination of benefits.

Opting Out of coverage: If you are an eligible student and have comparable health and/or dental coverage you may apply to opt-out of the plan(s). Each student is given one opportunity to opt-out of the health and/or dental plan(s) each year. All opt-out forms must be completed online through myKwantlen (online services) or through the Student Benefits Plan Office and must be received by the applicable deadline. You will not be able to opt-out of coverage at any other point during the school year. NO EXCEPTIONS will be made if the deadline is missed. It is the student's responsibility to pay the plan fees, should they miss the applicable opt-out deadline.

The opt-out process must be completed each year that you are assessed the Health and Dental Plan fee.

If your financial situation makes it difficult to pay fees, KPU and the KSA have programs that can assist. There is assistance through KPU Student Awards and Financial Assistance, including emergency bursaries, emergency loans and fee deferral.

The KSA also has a Health & Dental  Hardship Bursary, please see the policy for more details - download the application HERE
