YFS HEALTH and DENTAL PLAN!

You may or may not know this but, every single full-time student is automatically IN the health and dental plan! This means that you will be charged $241.49, for 12 months worth of health and dental coverage! I know, I know... "what does this mean!?", "what if I don't want it?!", "what does it cover?!". Hold. Onto. Your. Horses. People. I'm going to answer some of the most frequently asked questions right in this blog, so you can be in the know about this plan!

What if I don't want the plan?
If you don't want the plan, and you are already covered under a different plan you would want to "opt-out". You can opt-out here.  Just follow the steps, and it'll guide you. Make sure to opt-out by October 5 or else you will be charged and kept in the health and dental plan.

What does the plan cover?
The plan actually covers a variety of things! Some of these include:
- $100/24months for vision care
- 80% prescription drugs, for up to $1000
- $25 per visit for up to $300 for dietician, chiropractic care, acupuncture, physiotherapy, and other services
- The plan covers many other things as well, click here for the full list

Can my family be covered?
You can add your children and/or spouse onto your plan, but it will cost more:
$241.39 is charged to all students or to individual student who enrolls manually.
$468.84 to add ONE dependent (note: this is in addition to $241.39 paid as a student)
$579.65 to add more than one dependent (note: this is in addition to $241.39 paid as a student)


How do I use the plan? Do I get a card to prove I am covered?
You do not get a card with the YFS health and dental plan. Instead you can provide the following information to your health care provider:
Benefit Provider: GREEN SHIELD CANADA
Drugs: (Prescription) YFS + Student Number +00
Dental: Group Policy/Plan No: 11111
Division/Section No: YFS
Employer: York University
Certificate No/ I.D. No: Student Number

That about covers all the questions we have been getting here at the RED Zone! 

Remember: If you DO want the plan you don't have to do anything as you are automatically going to be placed in the plan! 

For more information feel free to contact the YFS through their website or give them a call at 416-736-2100 ext. 58066

Until Next Time, I'll be Yorking Around,

    1. Generally 75% of dental care is covered for up to $500, but It would depend on what work you'd be getting done. The benefit plan booklet is here: http://fileserver.cfsadmin.org/file/yfs/6e354250bc4791d520a3ac9d02b5dfbc9363168c.pdf or I'd recommend calling YFS at 416-650-8066 for more detailed information.

  32. In Canada, patients bear the responsibility of paying for services rendered. The Canada Health Act (CHA) doesn’t cover oral health care. Most citizens receive dental coverage through their employer.
