Health Plan

ABOUT

We offer a health, dental and travel insurance plan to all full-time Durham College and UOIT students provided by www.wespeakstudent.com.

New this year, we’re giving you the chance to choose a plan that’s specially designed to fit your needs. Select one of four plans, equal in value, each with different combinations of prescription, dental and vision coverage.

Students are automatically enrolled on the balanced plan, but can easily switch to one of our three enhanced plans. If you select an enhanced plan before September 30, it will take up to three weeks for the changes to take effect.

FAQ

What do I need to know about the health plan opt-out or adding dependents?

Students may opt-out of the dental and extended health portion of the plan if you’re already covered. Proof of coverage must be provided. Students cannot opt-out of prescription drug, travel insurance, and accident insurance. Student can also choose to add dependents to the health plan for an additional fee.

Students can opt-out or add dependents to the plan at www.wespeakstudent.com by the deadline. Students may only opt-in or out during the month that they start full-time studies. No exceptions are made if the deadline is missed. May start students must opt-out in person at the SA Main Office and provide proof of existing coverage. Opt-out cheques are issued in the name of the student.
