Student Health and Dental Plan
SAIT's Student's Association (Saitsa) provides an affordable benefit 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.
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 summer, Saitsa will accept health and dental opt-out forms for Fall 2021. As soon as you are registered or begin self-registration for Fall 2021 courses you can submit your opt-out form.
You have until Monday, July 26 to opt-out for processing before the tuition fee deadline to receive opt-out credits before paying tuition and fees. All other health and dental opt-outs processed after Monday, July 26 will follow SAIT’s refund policy where credit balances may be applied to future terms.
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.
As of Sept. 1, 2021, international students will have coverage with the Saitsa health and dental plan. It provides 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.
