Health&Dental Survey

All full-time undergraduate students (taking three or more courses per session) at the U of C are automatically enrolled in the Student Health and Dental Plan when they register for classes.

The Health Plan provides students with a comprehensive set of health insurance benefits (prescription drugs, vision care, paramedical services, such as physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, ambulance services, and many other benefits).  This plan is supplementary to any provincial health care plan.
