Health and Dental Opt-Out Application

Fall 2023 deadline to submit applications
Saturday, September 23rd, 2023, 11:30 PM

Each fall term, students may opt-out of the Student Plan by the applicable fall deadline if they are covered by a comparable Health Plan from parents, spouse, work, government, or band and do not wish to Coordinate Benefits.

Things to consider when thinking of opting out:

  • A parents' insurance plan will stop covering you if you are a part-time student over the age of 21 or a full-time student over the age of 25.
  • You can coordinate 2 benefit plans and increase your coverage up to 100%! Find out more Coordination of Benefits
  • What is in the best interest of my overall health & wellbeing?
  • Does my existing coverage meet all my needs?
  • The only time you can get back on this student plan is at the start of next fall term OR within 30 days of losing your alternate coverage.

Proof of comparable coverage

You are required to provide proof of your comparable extended health coverage by attaching documentation displaying the policy information when you are completing the online form.

Confirmation of coverage must show the name of the insurance company providing the coverage and the policy number. Acceptable forms of confirmation of coverage are:

  • Copy of a Plan Card (front and back images).
  • Confirmation letter from the employer or insurance company with a current date.
  • Webpage print out with a visible current date.
Important notes:
  • Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP), or the Student Plan is not acceptable as comparable insurance coverage.
  • Students with comparable coverage can choose to opt out of health.
  • The comparable coverage accepted could be from parents, spouse, work, government, or band. To be considered a comparable health plan, the alternate coverage must include prescriptions, vision, paramedical practitioners, counselling, and more.
  • If you upload any dental, Life, or AD&D insurance documents as proof, the opt-out request will be denied, and a new form must be submitted before the deadline providing the required proof.
  • Approval of the Students opt-out will result in the plan fee being refunded according to the school's policy.
  • All eligible students who previously opted-out of the Plan will be automatically re-enrolled into the plan every Fall term. If you wish to keep your waiver active, you must apply to opt-out again and provide the proper documentation every year.
  • 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.
  • Once you complete the opt-out form, you will receive an automated email confirmation. Please keep this email for your records as it is your only proof of submitting an opt-out request.
