Membership in a student insurance plan was voted as being mandatory by the student body. The fee for the plan covers accidents and some medical and dental expenses.

Please consult this website for the schedule of benefits available to you under your Group Insurance Plan.

To make the collection of the insurance premiums efficient and inexpensive for the Students’ Association (SPUSA), Saint Paul University has agreed to include the charge with the tuition. Therefore, a fee for individual coverage is added to the tuition payment of full-time students and appears on the invoice. It covers the student for a 12-month period starting in September. Family insurance is also available.

Any student with comparable coverage may opt out of the plan by providing sufficient proof of equivalent coverage. To opt out of or opt into the plan, go to the Studentcare website.

Change-of-Coverage Period Dates for 2022–2023

The Change-of-Coverage Period is the period at the beginning of the academic year when you can either opt out, enrol yourself, or enrol your spouse and/or dependent children in the UOSU / SPUSA Health & Dental Plan.

Fall term
Students starting in September: Sept. 6 – Sept. 30, 2022

Winter term
New students starting in January: Jan. 3 – Feb. 3, 2023

Spring term
New students starting in May: Apr. 28 – May 12, 2023

Only students who provide sufficient proof of being covered by comparable health and/or dental coverage may be exempt from paying these insurance fees.

Please note that this renunciation of the insurance plan does not extend in any way to the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) that applies to international students. All international students must join UHIP.
