Important Upcoming Opt-Out Dates for CESAR/CESAX* Health & Dental Plan

Part-time undergraduate degree students beginning classes for the first time this academic year in the Winter 2022 term will be charged $159.31 for the CESAR/CESAX* Health and Dental Plan. The charge is reflected on your tuition and ancillary fee statement for health and dental benefits provided by CESAR/CESAX*. Those charged may be eligible to opt-out of the CESAX Health & Dental Plan coverage.

Opt-out Dates:

For students starting studies in September 2021 (12-month coverage period), you will have the opportunity to opt-out of the CESAX* Health and Dental Plan:

  • From September 1, 2021 to October 8, 2021, there are no exceptions to this deadline.

For students starting studies in January 2022 (8-month coverage period), you will have the opportunity to opt-out of the CESAX* Health and Dental Plan:

  • From January 3, 2022 to February 11, 2022, there are no exceptions to this deadline.

REMINDER: Students need to opt-out of the CESAX* health and dental plan each year and there is no automatic opt out. If you enroll in the Fall session I encourage you to put a calendar reminder in September to opt-out, or if you start the academic year in the Winter term, a calendar reminder in January. In order to be eligible to opt-out, you must provide proof of your alternate coverage information, or your opt–out will be incomplete and you will not receive a refund. If you set those reminders, you will be ahead and well aware of when the refund deadlines are approaching so you can apply for your opt-out refund to help facilitate your opt-out refund process.

NOTE:

  • Opt-out refunds are issued once per academic year, therefore you only have the one opportunity at the beginning of your studies, each year.
  • Opt-out refunds from CESAX are distributed in the form of e-transfers directly to you, and NOT to your RAMSS account.
