Domestic students 

SAIT's Student's Association(Saitsa) provides an affordable benefits plan designed to help full-time domestic students attending SAIT. All full-time students in regular credit programs are automatically enrolled in the student health and dental plan.

For more information about your student health and dental plan go to saitsa.com/benefits or email us. This plan does not cover doctor's visits.

Students with existing coverage can opt-out of the health and/or dental plan before the deadline each year. It’s also possible to add dependents to the plan before the deadline. Health and dental opt-out credits will be first applied to any applicable outstanding balance or future registration charges prior to being eligible for a refund at the end of the academic term.

Changes to health and dental opt-out credits

Beginning this fall, Saitsa will accept health and dental opt-out forms for Fall 2022. You can submit your opt-out form as early as September 1, 2022. You may access and submit your opt-out form here.

You have until Friday, Sept. 16, 2022 to opt-out. All health and dental opt-outs processed will follow SAIT’s refund policy here credit balances may be applied to future terms.

International students 

All international students who study in Canada are required to have health insurance. Without adequate medical insurance, you will have to pay the full cost of any medical treatments, which can be very expensive.

Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP)

International students who have a 12-month study permit (valid for an Alberta educational institute) and who will reside in Alberta for 12 months or more are able to apply for Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP).

If you are under age 18, you must be added to the AHCIP account of a custodian. In case you do not have a legal custodian, you are not eligible for AHCIP until you turn 18 of ages to apply for yourself. You are strongly recommended to have alternative health coverage from commercial insurance in Alberta or travel Insurance from your home country to ensure you are always covered.

Saitsa Student Health and Dental Plan

On top of AHCIP, the Saitsa health and dental plan provides additional coverage for day-to-day needs, including prescription drugs, counselling, select dental services, massage therapy, and more. This is a comprehensive insurance plan designed to secure your health and financial well-being from possible medical emergency treatment costs while you're pursuing your education.
