How to Opt-Out

To opt-out, you must show proof of equivalent insurance (not OHIP). You must opt-out annually, at the beginning of the term you are first registered in. You cannot rejoin the plan after you have opted-out, so check the expiry date on your insurance. Visit www.studentcare.ca to opt-out online.

How to Opt-In

To opt-in your dependents, you must opt-in them in annually, at the beginning of the term you are first registered in.  This is an annual plan.  You cannot opt in your dependents for one semester only. Visit www.studentcare.ca to opt-in online.
