Undergraduate Student Health & Dental Plan Opt-Out / Family Opt-In:
Starts: August 5, 2020 Ends: September 25, 2020
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 studentvip.ca by the deadline of September 25, 2020. The Health and Dental plan fees are billed to your student account one time per year only.
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 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).
When opting out online you are required to register for an account and provide the following details:
MyLaurier email address
Student ID number
First and last name
Opting out of: health, dental or both
Name of the insurance company providing your benefits
Name of the plan sponsor (employer name or privately purchased)
