During the Election, AUSU will be holding a vote to approve the implementation of a new Health Care Plan. This plan will cost $325 per year, however students can opt out of the plan before the fees are applied. Those who do not, however, will receive benefits of up to $500 in dental (including preventative work), $300 in physician care (including chiropractors, naturopaths, and physiotherapists), 80% coverage of prescription drugs, and up to $2000 coverage of private tutorial service if they’ve been hospitalized, and this coverage is in addition to any other plans they might already have.
However, before these benefits can be offered, students need to vote for the plan alongside the AUSU Election from Feb 19-22. Even if you do not want the plan personally, your vote could enable some other student who needs it to take advantage of it.
