Below are some frequently asked questions and associated answers. Please review these before contacting the Students’ Union with questions.
Sometimes when your existing coverage is provided through a parent, you don’t always have the plan information directly. You can access the necessary information on a claim card, which is provided to every plan member, or by logging into your online claims website. You can also call you carrier and ask for the necessary information. Insurance providers can provide you proof of coverage letters that include the necessary details and validate that you have existing coverage.
Yes. You are able to add a single dependent (spouse, common law partner or one child) for an additional payment of $260, or your whole family for an additional payment of $390. The process of adding a dependent occurs after you have been enrolled in the plan yourself as the principle, and receive a link to your online health and dental plan portal. Through that portal, you can access the option to add dependents by filing in the necessary information and by paying the fee online. An access link to this portal will be emailed once you are enrolled in the plan.
The deadline to add dependents is the last day of the month in which you were enrolled (for example, if you received notice of enrolment in October, you would need to add your dependents by October 31).
The Students’ Union plan is applied to most students in full-time post-secondary programs of 26 weeks or longer. Some exceptions may apply. Please check your CNC student account summary to confirm your inclusion in the plan and email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Students covered with FNHA are not automatically opted out of the Students’ Union plan. However, if they wish to do so, they will have to follow the same opt-out process. Those with sponsored education may not be provided financial support for the costs of the Students’ Union health and dental plan. Make sure to connect with the sponsor for clarification.
There are some areas in which the Students’ Union plan provides more coverage. Students may choose to enjoy coverage with both plans. The primary difference in coverage is access to paramedical services, such as chiropractor, physiotherapy, acupuncture and more. Review the full coverage provided with the Students’ Union plan before choosing to opt out.
