Health & Dental Plan Refunds

In 2015, AUSU had to make the difficult decision to terminate the AUSU Health & Dental Plan due to low enrollment. The plan officially ended on August 31, 2016.

Students enrolled in the plan on or before August 10, 2015 were not impacted by this termination, and received coverage for the full year for which they enrolled.

Students enrolled in the plan on or after August 11, 2015 received coverage until August 31, 2016, and were eligible for a prorated premium refund for the months after that date.

AUSU made numerous attempts to contact all students eligible for a refund, including several emails sent in July and November 2016, physical letters mailed in August 2016, and numerous phone call attempts to the last phone number AUSU has on record.

If you were enrolled in the AUSU Health and Dental plan, we may owe you a refund. To inquire, please contact AUSU by September 30, 2017 at Any remaining health & dental plan refunds not claimed by September 30, 2017 will be transferred into a restricted bursary fund for the AUSU Health Care Bursary.
