Health and Dental Plan

The Dalhousie Student Union (DSU) Health and Dental Plan is a student-oriented benefits plan that covers prescriptions, dental, travel, accident, vision, and many other services. 

  • All full-time students who start in September on the Halifax and Truro Campus are automatically covered under the DSU Health & Dental Plan. Students with comparable coverage may be eligible to opt out of this plan.
  • All international and international exchange students on the Halifax and Truro Campus are automatically covered under the DSU International Students Health Plan. Students with comparable coverage may be eligible to opt out of this plan.
  • Students on a co-op/work term/or outgoing exchange in the fall term, and not taking any classes, are not automatically enrolled on the DSU Health Plans. Students can opt in to coverage by the set opt in periods.

IMPORTANT - If you have comparable coverage, you MUST opt-out of the DSU Health and Dental Plan by September 18th! 

NEW INFORMATION If you're a returning student, starting in September 2018 your Identification Number will be changing and you'll need a new plan card!

  • The last two digits of your Identification Number will change from 01 to 00.
    Your old ID: # 00012345601
    Your NEW ID: # 00012345600
