Health Plan

Eligible full-time, undergraduate students are automatically enrolled as plan members to both the USC Health and Dental plans, overseen by your elected representatives.


What we do

A portion of your student fees contributes to this coverage, which is specifically designed to supplement provincial health care and meet students’ needs. Purple Care 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.


If you have questions or concerns, you may contact the USC’s Plan Administrator, Nina Joyce.

Opting out

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.

The deadline to opt-out is September 23rd, 2023 at 11:30pm.
