Change of Coverage: Opting-Out or Opting-Down
During the Change of Coverage period, you can choose a different level of coverage, mix and match portions of the Enhanced Care and Basic Care Plans, or opt out of the health portion, the dental portion, or the Plan in its entirety.
These changes can only be made during the Change-of-Coverage Period: August 24 – September 22, 2020 (for fall term), and December 22, 2020 – January 22, 2021 (for winter term).
- Opting out: If you have alternative extended health and dental coverage you can opt-out of the Plan in its entirety (or opt out the health portion or the dental portion).
- Opting down: You can opt down to the Basic Care Plan, a lower level of coverage at a lower price, with no proof of coverage required.
- You must opt-out every semester!
Opting out happens entirely online through the Studentcare website directly.
