UVic Undergraduate Students' Society Extended Health and Dental Plans

The UVSS provides a mandatory extended health and dental plan for undergraduate students, voted in by student referendum. The fee for students taking on-campus courses is:

3.0 or more credit units in the first term - Coverage between Sept. 1, 2011 and Aug. 31, 2012
Health Coverage $144.00
Dental Coverage $144.00
3.0 or more credit units in the second term AND not assessed this fee in the first term - Coverage between Jan. 1 and Aug. 31, 2012
Health Coverage $96.00
Dental Coverage $96.00

The coverage offered by the UVSS Health & Dental Plan is supplementary to that provided by provincial medical services. It does not replace coverage provided by provincial medical plans.

Students who are members of the University of Victoria Students’ Society and who are registered in at least 3 units of on-campus classes in September or January are automatically assessed for the UVSS Health & Dental Plan. Students who carry acceptable alternative coverage may opt out of the Plan and receive a credit to their student account. For students beginning their academic year in September, the Change-of-Coverage Period is Sept. 1 to 30, 2011. For new students beginning their academic year in January, the Change-of-Coverage Period is Jan 4 to 31, 2012.

To opt out of the UVSS Health & Dental Plan, students must complete the opt-out process at <www.ihaveaplan.ca>. They will be asked to provide proof of other equivalent health and/or dental coverage. Details on what constitutes acceptable proof of coverage is available at <www.ihaveaplan.ca>. It is the student’s responsibility to check their Tuition Fee Statement to confirm reversal of fees up to and including the deadline. Students who wish to opt out again next year must renew their opt out directly through <www.ihaveaplan.ca>.
