How do I opt out of medical and dental fees?
Information for Guelph-campus students
Students covered by an equivalent health plan and/or dental plan can opt out of these plans by submitting an online opt-out form by the posted deadline. Students will need to provide proof of alternate coverage.
NOTE: Dental opt-outs will no longer carry forward from year to year; students who wish to opt out of the health plan and/or the dental plan MUST opt out every year, commencing Fall 2019.
OVC DVM Program Students: The Student Health Plan covers all requisite rabies vaccines (initial series) plus any needed booster vaccinations) required for students registered in the DVM program. Should you choose to opt out from the student health plan, please first ensure that you have coverage specifically for rabies vaccination by an alternate plan. The average cost is $200 per rabies vaccination dose and three or more doses are typically required. Note that students not covered by the Student Health Plan will be required to pay up front and then submit for reimbursement to their alternate plan.
