First Year Student Blackout
Please note that if you are a first year student your plan date starts on September 01, 2021 but you will not be able to set up your Greenshield Account or make any claim until after the opt out deadline of October 04, 2021 has passed. Please keep any receipts you have from health and dental services from September 01, 2021 to October 04, 2021 as you will be able to make those backdated claims once the blackout period is lifted. If you are a returning student you do not have a blackout period and can both make claims and set up your Greenshield Account right away.
