The plan is designed to supplement provincial health insurance and provide additional access to medical services.

 

Online Forms

Opt-Out Applications

Submit your health and/or dental opt-out application before the deadline.

Fall Application Period

August 1st, 2024 to September 30th, 2024

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 starting the fall term, or (2) when they are new students in winter term.

How to Opt Out

To Opt Out, you must be enrolled in the Student Beneftis Plan, meet the Opt-Out eligibility criteria, and complete the online form before the applicable term 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.
