Health Plan

USC Health Plan


The University Students’ Council oversees a health insurance plan for all undergraduate students. A portion of your student fees contribute to this coverage, which is especially designed to meet student needs and supplement provincial health care coverage. This insurance is developed and delivered by the Campus Trust, and includes health, dental, and travel benefits.

Students who are covered under an equivalent extended benefit health care plan (in addition to your standard provincial coverage) may choose to “opt-out” of the USC plan. This typically applies to students who have previous and continuing health insurance coverage provided by a parent or guardian. If you choose to opt-out, the fee will be reimbursed and credited to your online Western student services account.

The deadline to opt-out is Monday, September 26, 2014.

To opt-out, visit the student benefits website and follow the instructions provided. Proof of alternative coverage is required.  If you have questions or concerns, you may contact the USC’s Plan Administrator at or visit Mustang Central in the University Community Centre.
