Enrolling your Family

Adding Optional Family Coverage

To purchase family coverage for their spouse and/or dependent(s), a student will need to complete an application form online and pay the family coverage fee. Family add-on forms must be received within 30 days from the first day of class in your first OR third semester OR on your policy anniversary date . Upon approval, you will receive an email with a payment link (MasterCard and/or Visa) for payment of the family add-on fees. A payment deadline will be included with this link.

Family coverage is then added to the student's account at the insurance company, but not fully activated until receipt of the first claim for each of your family members, whom you have added on to your Health and Dental Benefit Plan. This must be submitted by manually completing a printed-out benefit claim form.

Who can I add?

Spouse means the person who is a resident of Canada, and who is married to the student, or a person of either sex who has continuously co-habitated with the student for a period of at least one year and who is publicly represented as the student’s wife or husband.

Dependent means an unmarried child who is a resident of Canada, and entirely dependent on the student for maintenance and support, and who is:
1) under 21 years of age,
2) under 25 years of age and attending a college or university full-time, or
3) physically or mentally incapable of self-support and became incapable to that extent while entirely dependent on the student for maintenance and support and while eligible under 1) or 2) above.

What are the fees?

IMPORTANT: 
These fees are in addition to the student health and dental fee. 

2017 - 2018 Family Fees:
Health (one or more dependent): $180.00
Dental (one dependent): $180.00
Dental (two or more dependents): $360.00

Please read this carefully before continuing:

1) If you have added your family to your plan, your family coverage will terminate when your student coverage ends.

2) Your family can only be covered while you are a student on the plan(s).

3) The first claim for each of your family members, whom you have added on to your Health and Dental Benefit Plan, must be submitted by manually completing a printed-out benefit claim form. This form must be then be mailed in to the appropriate address (listed on the form).

4) Your optional family add-on is not automatically renewed. In order for your family add-on to continue, you must purchase the coverage each benefit year before the applicable deadline.

5) Family add-on fees are non-refundable.
