Undergraduate Health & Dental Plan
Health & Dental Opt-Out/Family Opt-In
Winter Term Start Opt Out Period: December 4th, 2023 - January 19th, 2024
About the Health & Dental Plan
The Undergraduate Student Health & Dental Plans are mandatory for all Full & Part-Time students. Students may opt-out if they have proof of alternative extended health & dental coverage, or may remain enrolled and combine benefits from both plans.
All students choosing to opt out must do so through the Student VIP website by the deadline of January 19th, 2023. The Health and Dental plan fees are billed to your student account one time per year only, depending on whether you begin your studies in Fall or Winter Term.
Please visit studentvip.ca to review the benefits prior to opting out. In many situations, it will be financially beneficial for you to remain on the plan and coordinate benefits with another plan you may already have.
Students will be reassessed and charged a fee for the plans on a yearly basis. This means you will need to provide proof of alternative coverage and opt-out each year you are a student (including co-op work terms). Alternatively, if you opt out this year, you are still eligible for the plans in subsequent years.
Once you opt out, you are not eligible under any circumstance to opt back in during the current policy year of September 1 to August 31 (this includes a parent experiencing a loss of employment and benefits).
