BC Medical Services Plan (MSP)

In order to claim health benefits under the AMS/GSS Health & Dental Plan, you must be covered by the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP), or have other equivalent basic coverage such as other provincial health care or private basic health insurance. MSP is public health insurance and anyone residing in B.C. for longer than six months is required by law to enrol in it.

Change-of-Coverage Period

Students can opt out or enroll their family during the following periods only:

  • For current students and students starting in September: September 5-26, 2017
  • For students starting in January: January 3-24, 2018 (New Winter Term 2 students only)

Blackout Period

The processing of new Plan members’ claims is delayed for the first two months of each term while StudentCare, our extended health and dental plan provider waits for complete enrolment lists, after opt-outs and enrollments have been processed. Claims can be dropped off at the Health & Dental Plan Office, but they will not be processed until the Blackout Period ends. You may also hold your claims until this time.

Remember: claims are your responsibility until received by the insurance company. Practitioners and pharmacists can’t accept Pay Direct, or assignment of benefits during the Blackout Period.

If you’re covered by another extended plan (i.e. parent or spouse’s employee plan), you can combine both plans to maximize your overall coverage and reduce or eliminate out-of-pocket expenses.

You may also choose to opt out of the AMS/GSS Plan and have the fee reversed from your student account. All opt-outs must be completed within the Change-of-Coverage Period or within three weeks of your registration date, whichever is later. If it is your first time opting out, you will need to provide proof of other health and dental coverage. Visit studentcare.ca and follow the on-screen instructions for opting out.

Students have the option of enrolling their spouse or dependants by completing an enrolment process and paying an additional fee. Common law and same-sex couples are eligible. Visit studentcare.ca and follow the on-screen instructions for enrolments.
