You’re automatically charged and covered by the Plan.

Please note that students and their dependants aren't covered for out-of-province or out-of-country emergency services once they reach age 65.


If you're an Indigenous student funded by your nation, your nation may not cover the Plan fee. If you have FNHA health and dental coverage and would like to opt out of the Plan, be sure to complete the opt-out process online.

Coverage for Your Spouse and/or Your Dependent Children
You can extend your coverage to your family (spouse and/or dependent children) by enrolling them in the Plan and paying an additional fee, over and above your individual fee as a Plan member. Common law couples are eligible. See the Couple & Family Enrolments section for details.
