In January 2002, students in a referendum overwhelmingly voted in favour of an extended health and dental care plan.

At the request of students via a referendum, UMSU implemented a health and dental plan designed by students to provide many important services and cover expenses that are excluded from basic public health care.

Services include additional prescription drug, ambulance, and vision coverage; paramedical treatment; dental care; and more.

Although UMSU advocates for better public health care, it is important that students also have coverage now.

All UMSU members (students who are in at least one on-campus course) and registered for a minimum of 6 credit hours of courses and all full-time graduate students are automatically members of the UMSU Health & Dental Plan, and are assessed the fee on their Aurora tuition fee statements in the Fall term. You must also be covered under a Provincial Health Insurance Plan.

You will become eligible for a 12-month term of coverage commencing September 1 and ending August 31.

New full-time students who are first-time entrants to the University of Manitoba in the Winter 2014 term who take at least nine (9) credit hours on Campus will be assessed health & dental fees on their tuition and will be covered from January 1 to August 31.

Returning students to the University of Manitoba, Co-op program students, Distance Education students and/or part-time graduate students may not automatically be assessed health & dental fees on their tuition. If you are not automatically assessed the fees on your Aurora fee assessment and are interested in becoming a member of the plan, please refer to the Opt-In page.
