Reminder: Blackout Period

Just a reminder that starting in September there will be a blackout period for ALL students.  Students will also be unable to access the new Blue Cross member portal until the blackout period is over.
As usual, students can still use Direct2U during the blackout to avoid paying if they cannot pay out of pocket for medications while the opt-out/in is running.

The Blackout Period has ended:

Hello students! 

The blackout period for the BUSU Health & Dental Plan has officially ended! Your next step is to register through the RWAM Portal that can be located by clicking the orange box below. Once you have registered, you will be able to start making claims and accessing direct billing. 

In another orange box below is an informational sheet that will help you apply for Pharmacare. Manitoba Pharmacare is a drug program offered to individuals who have a valid Manitoba Health Card. This program will work in conjunction with your BUSU Health Plan in order to bring you better savings and coverage for your prescription drug needs. You will need to apply for Pharmacare once you have accumulated $150.00 in drug claims as RWAM’s drug plan will not process any further claims until that is received. Good news… BUSU will help you do this and it’s a super easy form! If you already have Pharmacare, please give us a call and we’ll tell you how to proceed.

For assistance you can call the BUSU office at (204)727-9660 or stop by the BUSU office located on the first floor of the Knowles-Douglas Centre.

We will also have BUSU representatives sitting in the Mingling Area on Monday, October 26th (8:30-4:30) to help you register in the RWAM Portal, apply for Manitoba Pharmacare, and to help you with any other Health & Dental related questions or concerns. 

Please note: Those of you who only just opted into the plan over the past two weeks will have to wait another few days to be enrolled into the program.
