Health and dental insurance
For information and support regarding the health and dental insurance plan, click here.
If you’re already covered by an equivalent health and/or dental plan, you can opt out during the Change-of-Coverage Period and receive a credit to your student account for the amount of the Plan.
You can only opt out of the Health Plan upon showing proof of other equivalent health coverage. Similarly, you can only opt out of the Dental Plan with other equivalent dental coverage. You can opt out completely from the UOSU/SPU Health & Dental Plan upon showing proof of other equivalent health and dental coverage. Opt Outs (studentcare.ca)
ADD A SPOUSE OR CHILD/OPT IN
In order to be eligible for coverage, you and your family must already have provincial or equivalent primary health-care coverage.
Couple & Family Enrolments eligibility
Your Plan gives you the option to enrol your family (spouse and/or dependent children) by completing an enrolment process and by paying an additional fee, over and above your individual fee as a Plan member. Common law couples are eligible.
Students who are eligible to enrol themselves and wish to cover their spouse and/or dependent children have to pay the appropriate couple or family fee in addition to their own enrolment fee.
Please note: Your dependants’ coverage is only valid as long as you’re covered under the Plan. Couple & Family Enrolments (studentcare.ca)
