All full-time, activity-fee paying domestic students are covered by a health plan provided through We Speak Student and underwritten by ClaimSecure. The cost is $75 per semester (maximum premium is $150) and the term of coverage is from enrolment through the end of the academic year (for example, Sept. 2018-Aug. 2019). Students have an option to add their dependents for an additional charge. There is also an opt-out option if you have coverage through another provider. Both of these options are done online through the We Speak Student website.
The health plan covers 90% of most prescriptions to a maximum of $1200 per academic year. Birth control is now included in the plan (maximum $200).
Basic and preventative dental (maximum $400) at 70% coverage with some provision for minor restorative services (at 50% coverage). We Speak Student also has a Dental Network that can provide higher coverage if using a dentist within the network.
There is also coverage for Registered Massage Therapy or Physio (maximum $300) and Psychologist or Speech Therapy (maximum $500 single or combined services).
Vision coverage is $80 of eye examinations and $100 towards the cost of lenses or contact lenses.
There is also a full program of accident benefits as well as
AD&D and repatriation.
