Welcome to your student health and dental benefits plan, effective Sept. 1, 2019. This is available to all eligible domestic full-time students here at SAIT. We are very excited to be working with our new provider, The Campus Trust, this year to give you the best service. They have been working with many local dental offices, pharmacies and health practitioners in our area to ensure they set up with direct billing so you pay less out of pocket. Your benefits include prescription drug coverage, vision, and dental care, counselling, massage therapy, and more! To view your benefits at a glance, download the pdf here. Visit studentbenefits.ca to access the benefits plan portal to access your current information and manage your benefits. Plus you can access a digital copy of your insurance card or print it once you register online. Check out the portal to find more information on Claim Submission, Adding Dependants, Direct Deposit, and more!
Have comparable coverage elsewhere? The deadline to opt-out of the student plan is Sept. 20, 2019. You must have another coverage in order to opt-out.
Do you have dependants to add to your plan? The deadline to add dependants is Sept. 20, 2019. Your dependents will become eligible for benefits during the first week of October.
Are you a current student who started school in January or May 2019 and has coverage through the previous provider? If yes, you are automatically added to this new plan for the remainder of your benefit year through our new provider. You must notify your clinic or pharmacy of the policy change. All the necessary information can be found on the student’s benefit cards, which are accessible on the portal once you register.
New this year – all students are required to opt-out each year. If you have already opted out from the previous health provider, you will need to do this again with the new provider by Sept. 20, 2019.
International Student Health and Dental Plan – Starting Sept. 1, health insurance for international students at SAIT will be provided under a new plan from Study Insured by SAIT.
