Health and Dental Coverage
Health and Dental Coverage
The CCSAI works with WeSpeakStudent to offer a comprehensive health and dental plan for domestic students.
The We Speak Student plan covers a number of services including: Prescriptions, Dental Care, Vision Care, Student Assistance Program (SAP) for mental health resources and more.
Please note that the plan is active for semesters in which you are enrolled in a full time program and pay the Health and Dental Insurance (HADI) fee. Please check your fee statement to confirm that the fee has been paid and you are eligible. Students on Co-op semesters do not currently pay the Health and Dental Insurance fee.
International students, you’re covered as well, but you’ll need to check out Guard.Me or International Education for more information on your plan.
Please note that online profiles along with claims and predeterminations will not be active on WeSpeakStudent.com for the first two weeks of the semester. All enrollment files will be received and uploaded by day 10 of the semester. The plan is active as of September 1, 2023 and services received between this time and day 10 can be submitted for reimbursement after day 10.

Domestic Health Plan Webinar
A lot has changed in the last few months, but one thing that hasn’t is our Domestic Student Health and Dental Plan. We want to make sure that students know that they’re covered and how to access that coverage. To help with that we asked our provider, We Speak Student to host a webinar to go over plan details and answer any questions that students had.
Be well and stay healthy!

Student Wellness Program (WeConnect)
The importance of prevention and self-care for students is extremely important today, especially for students arriving to join a new community, experience different environments and meet new peers.
