If you have alternate extended health and dental coverage you can opt-out online at studentcare.ca between August 22nd and September 22nd (December 22nd to January 22nd for students starting in the second semester). You can also opt-down from the Enhanced Plan (360$) to the Basic Plan (290$) here.
If you miss the Change-of-Coverage period for a valid reason you may appeal to the UVSS Health and Dental Appeals Committee by filling out and submitting the appeal form here. An appeal does not guarantee an opt-out, and should not be used as a primary method of opting out. You may not appeal to opt-down from the enhanced plan to the basic plan. Appeals will not be granted for students who have already filed claims.
Health & Dental Plan 2018-2019
Established by student referenda, the University of Victoria Students’ Society (UVSS) Health & Dental Plan is extended health and dental coverage designed specifically for students to cover expenses not covered by the Medical Services Plan (MSP) for BC residents and other basic health-care programs.
