Additional Details

  • During the first 45 days of your enrollment you will need to pay out of pocket for your expenses. Please keep your receipts as you will need to submit a request for reimbursement after the validation period has passed either through the providers e-claim app or via a manual form. Additional details can be found at mystudentplan.ca/tyndale/en/making-a-claim.
  • After the validation period you will need to register for a benefits e-card eprofile.claimsecure.com/?dest=register. This card will allow direct billing by the service provider, meaning that you will only be responsible to pay for the portion not covered by the plan.
  • Eligible Domestic and International Students may add to the plan their spouse or partner and children and provide combined Extended Health and Dental coverage for them.
