BUSU Health & Dental

 

Why do we have a plan?

In 2008, Brandon University students voted overwhelmingly in favour of creating a Health and Dental Plan for students who do not have coverage otherwise.

Why Did We Change Providers for 2015/16?

During the 2014/2015 year, your BUSU Executive Members and Staff had meetings with alternative Health & Dental providers. These meetings took place after our previous Health & Dental brokers had designed a poor opt-out system and benefits were required to decrease again. After lengthy discussions surrounding what would be best for students, your council decided to sign with Student VIP (C&C Insurance). We are happy to inform you that Student VIP has been able to increase several items in your benefits package, provide us with wonderful customer service, and still keep the plan at the low cost of $250.00. For more information on your new plan, please visit www.studentvip.ca/busu37 or call (204)727-9660.
