These Plans are Mandatory for Full and Part-time Students.

The Wilfrid Laurier University Students' Union provides for the needs of students. The health and dental plans are mandatory for all part-time and full-time students enrolled in the fall term, in an undergraduate course/program. The plan is also mandatory for co-op students enrolled in a fall work term and students enrolled in Online Learning courses. Students can obtain benefits information, claim forms and instruction on how to remit claims at wlusu.studentwise.ca and from the Health Plan Office.

Opt Out Eligibility

Students with alternate forms of coverage may be eligible to opt out. In order to opt out of the plan, students must do so ON-LINE and prior to the opt out deadline date. The opt out deadline date for the 2010-2011 policy year (this will be billed with your fall term 2010 invoice) is September 24, 2010. Follow the prompted instructions listed under the link entitled "opt out". At the end of the session, students are given a reference code which serves as a receipt. Eligible students must complete this procedure every year.

Fees for the Health and Dental Plan are assessed only once per year, in the fall term. Coverage begins September 1st and expires on August 31st of the following year.
