Opt-in (Rescind Waiver)

If you have successfully opted-out in the past, the college will revise your student account and you will not be charged the Health and Dental Plan fee for any of the years that follow. Therefore if you lose your alternative benefits, you have 31 days from the loss of your alternative benefits to inform a Student Association office to reinstate the student Health and Dental Plan.

Please note that the Health Plan can only be reinstated the following September or January after your alternative coverage has been terminated.

Students who have opted-out in the past and are returning to George Brown College for a new program or school year must verify whether they have their student Health and Dental benefits reinstated during the initial semester of your program or school year.

If you have had reinstated the plan in the past, it does not mean that you will be automatically reinstated for the next year. You should come to the Student Association front office every year to have your plan reinstated.
