DSU Health and Dental Plan

All full-time students who begin their studies in the fall term are automatically enrolled for coverage under the Dalhousie Student Union (DSU) Health and Dental Plan. The DSU Health and Dental Plan provides coverage for prescription medication, dental, vision, extended health care, accident and travel related expenses.

Please note that part time and distance students as well as students who are on co-op, or exchange in the fall term are not automatically enrolled in this plan and must opt in if they wish to have coverage.

The fee for the DSU Health and Dental Plan is billed to each student’s account and is compulsory unless the student has comparable private coverage. If students have comparable coverage, they may be eligible to opt out of (cancel) the DSU Health and Dental Plan during the appropriate opt out period.

Students are also eligible to add immediate family members (spouse and dependent children) to the plan during opt in period in the term in which the student begins their studies only.
