Already have coverage? Consider coordinating benefits! 

Before you decide to opt-out of the extended Health and Dental Plan that the Students Union provides for TRU Students, be sure to consider if it will benefit you to coordinate the coverage that you already have with the TRUSU Plan. These two plans can work together to provide you with the maximum level of coverage and benefits and ensure all your health needs are covered.

How to opt-out 

If you already have extended health and dental coverage through another provider and aren’t interested in coordinating your benefits, you are able to apply to be opted out of the TRUSU Extended Health and Dental Plan. To opt-out of the plan, you must complete the correct online opt-out form outlined below.
