To help University of British Columbia Okanagan students pay for the health services they need, UBCSUO has partnered with StudentCare in order to provide students with extended health and dental coverage.  The Plan is designed specifically for students to cover many services not covered by the Medical Services Plan for BC residents and other basic health-care programs.

Coverage begins September 1st, 2020 and lasts until August 31st, 2021 for students enrolled in both fall and winter semesters.  If you were enrolled in courses and assessed the extended Health and Dental fees in January - April 2020, you still have coverage up until August 31st 2020.
For more details about our extended Health & Dental Plan, please visit www.studentcare.ca, or call 1-877-795-4427 (or 1-236-766-2652).
