How to enrol for coverage: Fees for the student plan are assessed automatically by the institution at registration. You are also enrolled automatically should you meet the eligibility criteria for the plan. If you are unsure about whether or not you are eligible, please visit or contact the Students' Association of Keyano College.

New eligible students will be added to the plan(s) during the first 45 days of each semester. Please keep your receipts for eligible expenses incurred during this time period for submission to the insurance carrier upon completion of the enrolment process.

Returning eligible students may continue to access the plan(s) without disruption by using their current myBenefits Card or by submitting claims directly to the insurance carrier.

Accessing coverage: myBenefits Card - Pay-direct claims allow for direct billing of eligible costs between your pharmacy and/or dental office and the insurance company. Pharmacy claims are processed immediately so that students are not out of pocket the full expense at the time of purchase. Dental claims are processed based on the individual dental office's billing practices. These claims are accessed with the myBenefits Card. You can download the Card from or pick one up from the Students' Association of Keyano College.

Electronic Claims - Visit for access to Member eClaims. More information regarding eClaims can be found by visiting

Manual Claims - To submit a manual claim, complete an insurance claim form, attach the original receipts and documents, and mail to the insurer. Remember to keep a copy of all original documents for your records. You can download claim forms from or pick one up from the Students' Association of Keyano College.

Waiving coverage: If you are an eligible student and have comparable health and/or dental coverage you may apply to waive benefits. Each student is given one opportunity to waive benefits under the health and/or dental plan(s) each year. All waivers must be completed online or through the Students' Association of Keyano College and must be received within the first 2 weeks from the start of your program. You will not be able to opt out of coverage at any other point during the school year. NO EXCEPTIONS will be made if the deadline is missed. It is the student's responsibility to pay the plan fees, should they miss the applicable opt out deadline.

Approval of your opt out will result in the plan fee being credited. Once your waiver has been accepted, the waiver will remain in force as long as you remain an eligible student.


Coordinating Coverage: If you are an eligible student and have comparable coverage you may wish to coordinate the plans. Benefits under the two plans can be coordinated to increase your coverage up to 100% of the actual expense(s) incurred. For example, following payment under this plan you can submit outstanding balances to the other plan for consideration.


Adding Family Coverage: Each year, you are given one opportunity to purchase family coverage for your spouse and/or dependent(s) by completing an application form at the Students' Association of Keyano College and paying the family coverage fee. All family add-on forms and applicable fees must be received within the first 2 weeks from the start of your program. Your family can only be covered while you are a student on the plan(s).
Family Coverage MUST be renewed by the Student each benefit plan year. For further details regarding family coverage, visit or stop by the Students' Association of Keyano College.

Loss of Comparable Coverage: If comparable coverage used to opt out of the student plan terminates, or coverage provided to cover eligible dependents terminates, students have 30 days from loss of coverage to notify the Students' Association of Keyano College in order to opt in and be covered under the student plan. Confirmation of loss of coverage is required on re-application.
