How To Claim

Where do I get my benefits cards?

Head to www.studentbenefits.ca. Once you have completed your registration and logged in, your personalized benefits cards can be printed from the 'Download Centre'. Two cards will be available Health and Drug. The appropriate card should be presented to your health provider (dental office, pharmacist, etc.) in order to access the Pay-direct system whenever it is available. This way your claim is processed immediately without the need for you to make a claim online. Remember that all benefits have limits and some pharmacists and dental offices do not submit claims electronically.

What if I have more than one plan?

If you are making a claim for yourself this plan is the first payer and the coverage available through your other plan is the second payer. In the case you are making a claim for a spouse this plan is the second payer if they have their own plan. For dependent children, claims are submitted first to the benefit plan for the parent whose birthday (month and day) occurs earlier in the calendar year, regardless of age. Following the reimbursement from the first payer, copies of the receipts and the Explanation of Benefits must be submitted to the secondary plan so that the remaining balance can be considered for payment.

Can I assign my benefits to a provider?

Your plan allows you to assign your benefits to a provider. When you assign your benefits, the Explanation of Benefits (EOB) is mailed to the provider only. When a provider is submitting a claim on your behalf, the claim must include an Assignment of Benefits form, found on studentbenefits.ca under the Download Centre, an invoice, and a Doctor’s referral (if applicable). You must review and sign the Assignment of Benefits form to ensure accuracy before the claim is submitted, on your behalf, by your service provider.

How do I make a claim online?

Online Claim Submission is an easy and practical way to submit for reimbursement. You must log in to Member Registration in order to access the Online Claim Submission form. For more details, visit www.studentbenefits.ca.

How long do I have to make a claim?

Claims must be submitted within 6 months of the date of loss. If the Plan terminates, claims must be submitted within 3 months from the termination date. Legal action to recover benefits must begin within 2 years of the date of loss.

What if my practitioner does not accept my benefits card?

If your health care practitioner does not accept your benefits card (does not offer a pay-direct service) you are required to pay upfront and submit your receipt for reimbursement at studentbenefits.ca.
