Each student is responsible for their own basic health care coverage and must be enrolled in a provincial health plan or its equivalent. The Graduate Student Association arranges an extended health and dental benefit plan which is compulsory for full-time students unless proof of alternative coverage (i.e., Blue Cross, Clarica), with their name and UCID on it, is submitted to the GSA online (gsa.ucalgary.ca/optingout) or in person (MacKimmie Tower, Room 214) before the fee payment deadline.
Family Coverage must be applied for before the fee deadline. Part-time students are automatically excluded from the Health and Dental Plan, but may apply to the GSA to purchase this coverage. Application must be made before the fee payment deadline.
