SUS Health and Dental Plan fee

2013-14 Rates*

Aug 31, 2014

Coverage from
Jan 1–Aug 31, 2014
(for new January students only)

Full-time students



Part-time students



* Rates may change for 2014-15.

Most full-time students who are members of the Student Union Society (SUS) are automatically enrolled in the SUS Health & Dental Plan. The plan provides students with health and dental coverage for 12 months, from September 1 to August 31 of the following year. Students already covered by an equivalent extended health and dental plan may opt out of the plan online, during the Change-of-Coverage Period (typically the week before classes through the first two weeks of classes). The plan also gives students the option to enrol their families (spouses and/or dependants) by paying an additional fee.

Most SUS members who are not automatically assessed the fee, but wish to have coverage, are able to enrol themselves for an additional fee. Students starting in January may enrol at a pro-rated rate for eight months of coverage (January 1–August 31).
