Under one plan: opting out of student health plans

If faculty or staff have an eligible dependent child (up to age 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, they can provide confirmation of this coverage and may opt out of the UBC Student Health plan or other post-secondary institution’s health plan.  

If faculty or staff are taking undergraduate or graduate courses and are covered under the UBC Extended Health and Dental Care plans, they can provide confirmation of this coverage and may opt out of the UBC Student Health plan.  

The simplest and quickest way to opt-out of the Student Health Plan is: 

  • login to Workday 
  • go to Profile (click cloud or photo in top right corner) 
  • click the PDF icon at the top of the blue panel 
  • in the Print pop-up window select Benefits and My Dependents 
  • then Print (or Save to PDF) the Benefits Statement.  

You, your dependent child or spouse can then request to opt-out of the plan by visiting www.ihaveaplan.ca and uploading the Benefits Statement (when prompted for proof of coverage).  

If you have questions, please email benefitsinfo@hr.ubc.ca .
