About the UTGSU Health and Dental Insurance Plans

The University of Toronto Graduate Students’ (UTGSU) Supplementary Health and Dental Plan provides students with unique health benefits. The Plan was designed to provide many important services and cover expenses such as prescription drugs, health practitioners, medical equipment, travel health coverage, which are not covered by a basic health-care plan (i.e., OHIP) or the equivalent (such as UHIP for international students). Unfortunately, many students do not have access to affordable extended insurance through employers. Student health plans are designed to provide this access and eliminate barriers to affordable health care.
