HEALTH & DENTAL OPT-OUT/IN SEPTEMBER 2-30, 2014!
*The opt-out/opt-in deadline is September 30, 2014*
This year there seems to be some road bumps with the health plan, not only with Laurentian taking over registration, but also with some procedural changes with our service provider.
Typically, if you have registered as a full-time Laurentian student you have already paid your health and dental plan fee and would be automatically covered by the plan. Part time students should not be charged this fee and must opt-in if they require coverage. However, there seems to be some discrepancy between what student’s are understanding they are registered as and what they have indicated their “intended course load” as.
All students should check their webadvisor account to see if they have been charged this fee ($285) or check with LU Administration in C303 or at the 130 Bell Farm Rd. Offices.
The coverage will go live at once all students have opted in or out so until then save your receipts. Once the coverage has been made live you will be able to submit your receipts to the service provider using claims forms, available below or in our office, E 112A.
