Students are automatically enrolled in their post-secondary institution’s health plan, for example, UBC AMS/GSS Student Health Plan (UBC Vancouver) or UBCSUO Student Health Plan (UBC Okanagan).
This information is for UBC faculty and staff who need information about opting out of these plans.
How to Opt Out
For faculty and staff who need to opt out of the Student Health Plan (either for yourself or on behalf of your dependent — see details below), you will need to log into Workday and save your Benefits Statement to prove there is coverage already in place. You can access, print and save a record of your benefits coverage electronically at any time by going to your Profile, then Benefits, then View My Benefit Statement.
You, your dependent child or your spouse can request to opt out of the plan by visiting www.ihaveaplan.ca and uploading the Benefits Statement saved from Workday (when prompted for proof of coverage).
Dependent children or spouse
Eligible dependent children (up to the age of 25 and who are in full-time attendance in their program) or spouse who are covered under their parent’s (or spouse’s) UBC Extended Health and Dental Care plans and provide confirmation of this coverage may opt out of the UBC AMS/GSS Student Health plan (UBC Vancouver), UBCSUO Student Health Plan (UBC Okanagan) or other post-secondary institution’s health plan.
UBC Faculty or Staff
Faculty and staff who are taking undergraduate or graduate courses and covered under the UBC Extended Health and Dental Care plans and provide confirmation of this coverage may opt out of the UBC AMS/GSS Student Health plan (UBC Vancouver) or the UBCSUO Student Health Plan (UBC Okanagan).
