Extended Health and Dental
While attending Selkirk College, if you are registered in a 60 per cent or greater course load, you are automatically enroled in the Selkirk College Students’ Union Extended Health and Dental Plan. At a cost of $279, coverage includes:
other coverage tailored to students
Register to use this service at Green Shield Student Coverage.
If you have existing extended health and dental coverage, through another medical plan or benefits provider, you may opt-out of this otherwise mandatory plan. A correctly completed Opt-Out Form and proof of existing coverage are needed to do this. The process is also explained at selkirkstudents.ca
The deadline for opting out of the coverage is the last day of the month in which your program begins.
To view the extended health and dental fee and the required payment date, log onto your student record (select "Access your student record" then select "View my accounts"). If you have already opted out online through Green Shield, the fee may still be identified on your student account but will be removed by October 15, 2018.
If you need an Opt-Out Form or have questions about registering, making a claim, adding dependents or general information about the Extended Health and Dental Plan, please contact the SCSU at the Castlegar Campus at 250.365.1262 or firstname.lastname@example.org
