How do I Opt Out?

Only students who have alternative, comparable coverage are eligible to opt out of the LUSU Health & Dental Plan. Students who opt out will not be eligible to opt back in to the plan until next September. Please review the opt-out policy if you have any further questions.


If you have comparable coverage, you may still not want to opt out
LUSU is now offering enhanced health and dental plans that allow you to maximize the benefits that are important to your needs. You may want to review the Enhanced Plans before you decide to opt out.WeSpeakStudent.com.


You are able to combine coverage through the LUSU Health & Dental Plan with existing health and dental coverage
In many cases this will result in 100% coverage of drugs, practitioners, dental, and other benefits, and may provide more value than receiving a refund of the Health & Dental Plan fee.


Opt-out period: August 1 - September 30
Applications to opt out will not be accepted after the September 30 deadline. Opt out by visiting WeSpeakStudent.com during the opt-out period. You must provide proof of comparable coverage, which will require the name of the insurance company and policy number under which you are covered.


What you will need to opt out:

  1. Your personal information (DOB, LU student ID and email address, etc)
  2. Alternate insurance information: employer or plan provider, name of insurance company or first nations band or sponsoring group, group/policy number, and ID number or First Nations registry number
  3. If choosing direct deposit for your refund: institution, transit and account numbers
  4. If choosing e-transfer for your refund: LU email address must be used
