MISU Health and Dental Plan

The Marine Institute Students’ Union (MISU) provides the students of the Marine Institute with an extended health and dental insurance plan. The students covered under this insurance plan must be completing a Diploma, Advanced Diploma, Bridge Watch, Fire Rescue, Marine Diesel Mechanics, or various Transport Canada courses at the Marine Institute (MI) for a period of 12 weeks or more.

As a student of MI, you are automatically enrolled in the health and dental plan. If you have alternative extended coverage with another organization you may choose to opt-out of the MISU Health and Dental Plan. You can opt-out online here or by visiting the MISU office. This service will be available during the first two weeks of classes in September, January and May. You may also choose to opt-in members(s) of your family (spouse, common-law, dependents) and these forms may be obtained at the MISU office.

Your health and dental plan is designed to help cover medical expenses not paid for by your provincial heath plan. The plan includes, but is not limited to, curative prescription drugs, contraceptive drugs, dental treatments, and accidental death and dismemberment benefits. For more information, check out the health benefits page.
