Every full-time fee-paying Humber and Guelph Humber student is automatically covered by the flexible health insurance plan. Coverage terminates at the end of the policy year. The policy year runs from September-August.

If you drop out or leave for any reason, the coverage is automatically terminated.
Please Note: For students attending only one semester, coverage is for that semester. Fall semester runs September 1 to December 31. Winter semester runs from January 1 to April 30 and summer semester runs May 1 to August 31.


How to Make a drug/dental claim?

Present your Humber student identification card to a pharmacist or dentist located in Canada and payment of eligible claims will be covered. To fill a prescriptions drug or dental claim, you will need to supply the pharmacist/dentist with the following information:
Group Number: 514561
Provider: ClaimSecure (formerly RXPlus/Merz Health Corporation)
Your Student ID#Z________(10 digit alpha numeric number)
Ie. if your student ID # is 7 digits, the correct ID# would be z007654321
Ie. if your student ID # is 9 digits, the correct ID# would be z987654321

At this point you will be required to pay the deductible amount of your claim if necessary. Please note the dental office may charge more than the Fee Guide, which will require you to be responsible for any additional costs.

For Other Claims:

All other claims must be submitted on the Claim Submission Form available online or at the HSF offices.
Receipts and statements from doctors must be submitted upon request.

Special note to Placement and Internship Students

Placement students and part time students are not covered under the Health, Dental and Extended Plan.

This is because the full-time activity fee is not paid to the HSF. The fees you do pay relate to internship/placement administration costs and your tuition only. If you are interested in opting in to the insurance plan during your placement/internship semester/school term, please contact the HSF office for additional information.

Out of Country Provision if Traveling Abroad

The HSF Health, Dental and Extended Plan does not cover students traveling abroad, thus students traveling abroad should inquire about out of country entitlements prior to traveling abroad. Students are advised to consider buying travel insurance for added protection.

For full information and details on your coverage please consult the Student Insurance Plan Booklet.
