OPTING OUT - Undergraduate Students - MSU Health and Dental Plan Fees
The MSU Health and Dental Plan fees are part of the mandatory supplementary fees charged to undergraduate students registered in 18 or more units at any time during the 2012/13 session. Along with all supplementary fees, both Health and Dental plan fees are charged to the student account at the beginning of the academic year, and are itemized on the Account Statement.
If you are a student who is covered under a parent's Health and /or Dental plan, you may be eligible to opt out of the university's plans.
Opt-out forms are available online through the MSU website during the opt-out period of from September 1-30, 2012. Late applications are NOT accepted. The opt-out link can be found on the MSU website and will be operational during the opt-out period:
Once you have completed the online opt-out process, and it has been verified and accepted by the MSU office, a reimbursement cheque will be prepared and mailed directly to the student (to the address they have entered on MUGSI). Or you can opt to have the money directly deposited into your personal bank account. The original MSU charge for both Health and Dental Plans will always remain on the student's Account Statement as owing, and should be covered in the payment of school fees.
For more information on the extent of coverage you receive through these plans, or for the process to opt-out, please contact Victoria Scott at email@example.com or phone ext. 23251. http://www.msumcmaster.ca/newmsu/msu/membership/health.htm
