Good news! 

In order to enhance the experience of Capilano students, all students (including Squamish and Sunshine Coast campus students, online students, and off-campus students) who are taking 9+ credits will be automatically enrolled in the CSU's Health and Dental Plan (“The Plan”) starting in Fall 2014. This means easier access to the extended health and dental benefits that you're eligible for as a member of the Capilano Students' Union. 
 
The Plan includes benefits for prescription drugs, travel health coverage, eyeglasses or contact lenses, psychologist, massage therapist, physiotherapist, dental checkups and cleanings, fillings, extractions, and more. The total cost of the Plan is $226.03 per student and it is included automatically with your university fees each September. Full-year coverage is from Sept. 1, 2014 to Aug. 31, 2015.
 
If you are an international student, you must be covered by the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) or equivalent coverage. For more information, please visitwww.healthservices.gov.bc.ca/msp.
 
The Plan can be combined with another health and dental plan (i.e. a parent or spouse's employee benefit plan) to maximize your overall coverage and save on healthcare costs.
 
Alternatively, if you're covered by another health and dental plan, you can opt out online (atwww.ihaveaplan.ca) during the Change-of-Coverage Period and the Plan fee will be reversed from your student account. However, please note that your student plan provides certain benefits not available through other insurance plans, such as vaccinations and travel insurance.
 
The Plan also gives you the option to enroll your family (spouse and/or dependants) by completing an Enrolment Form and by paying an additional fee.
 
Students can opt out or enroll their family during the Change-of-Coverage period, which takes place from August 18, 2014 to September 16, 2014. Please note that Plan fees will be reversed from your account prior to the Capilano University fee payment deadline of August 26 if the opt-out is completed by August 22, 2014 at 4pm PST. If the opt-out is completed after this time, students must pay all their fees in full by the payment deadline and Plan fees will be credited back to your student account.
 
For more information about your plan, please visit www.ihaveaplan.ca or call 1.866.416.8701.
