Health and dental insurance
Students have voted to make membership in a student insurance plan mandatory. Premiums cover certain health and dental expenses. Please visit one of these websites for the schedule of benefits available to you under your group insurance plan or for any other questions related to the insurance plans, including opt-in and opt-out:
To make premium collection efficient and inexpensive for the Students' Union and the Graduate Students' Association, the University of Ottawa has agreed to include premiums with university fees. The premium amount appears on your statement of account.
Your insurance premiums must be paid by the date indicated in the Important dates and deadlines, or as soon as your class selection is approved.
Please note that your opting out of the insurance plan does not extend to the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP), which international students are required to join.
