Opting Out

Opt-Outs for Full Time Students

All full-time students are automatically included in the health plan. The fees are paid with tuition. Students who have similar coverage elsewhere can opt-out of the GSA health plan. The opt-outs are done at the beginning of each academic year from the first day of classes in September to mid-October. The dates will be confirmed before the start of the opt-out period. All opt-out requests must be submitted before the deadline. No opt-out requests will be accepted after the deadline.

All opt-outs are done online on the Green Shield Student Centre. One you choose the Laurentian University Graduate Students’ Association in the drop down menu, you will find the option to opt-out under the ‘what you need’ tab. Proof of comparable coverage is required to opt-out.
