Health Plan

Each student on Western’s campus is offered a health plan through the USC, which is directly overseen by your elected representatives. A portion of your student fees contributes to this coverage, which is specifically designed to supplement provincial health care and meet students’ needs. The Campus Trust develops the insurance plan, which includes health, dental, and travel benefits so you can focus on being a student and leave the stress of health coverage to us.

Students who are covered under an equivalent extended benefit health care plan (in addition to your standard provincial coverage) may choose to “opt-out” of the USC plan. This typically applies to students who have previous and continuing health insurance coverage provided by a parent or guardian. If you choose to opt-out, the fee will be reimbursed and credited to your online Western student services account.

NOTE: The opt out for the 2018/2019 school year will open on July 1/18 and close September 26th @ 11.30pm.
