UBC students (who pay AMS fees) are automatically enrolled in the UBC AMS/GSS Student Health Plan. If UBC faculty and staff are taking undergraduate or graduate courses with their tuition waivers, you can opt-out of the Student Health Plan by showing proof of coverage of your UBC Benefits. Similarly, if your dependent children are enrolled at UBC, they may be eligible to opt-out of the student health plan by showing proof of coverage through a parent’s benefits plan.
UBC Faculty or Staff with a child attending UBC
Eligible dependent children (up to the age of 25 and who are in full-time attendance in their program) who are covered under a parent’s UBC Extended Health and Dental Care plans may opt out of the UBC AMS/GSS Student Health plan if they provide confirmation of this coverage. To request a confirmation letter on behalf of your child, staff and faculty need to contact their Benefits Representative in Financial Services (see below). Once received, your dependent can request to opt-out of the plan by visiting www.ihaveaplan.ca.
UBC Faculty or Staff Taking Credit Courses at UBC
Staff and Faculty who are taking undergraduate or graduate courses may opt out of the UBC Student Health Plan. To opt-out of the UBC AMS/GSS Student Health Plan, staff and faculty must provide confirmation of their coverage under the UBC Extended Health Plan. The quickest way is to visit www.sunlife.ca/member and print their Sun Life coverage card. To make a request to opt-out of the plan, visit www.ihaveaplan.ca.
