To help University of British Columbia Okanagan students pay for the health services they need, the SUO has partnered with StudentCare in order to provide students with extended health and dental coverage.  The Plan is designed specifically for students to cover many services not covered by the Medical Services Plan for BC residents and other basic healthcare programs.

Coverage begins September 1st, 2023 and lasts until August 31st, 2024 for students enrolled in both winter terms.  If you were enrolled in courses and assessed the extended Health and Dental fees in January – April 2024, you still have coverage up until August 31st 2024.

When using your plan, please ensure that you have the policy number, found on the Pay-Direct Card. Please be sure to add your student id number into the boxes.
