What are the AUSU Health & Dental Benefits?

Powered by the Algoma University Student Union, you now have access to extended health coverage including prescription drugs, practitioner, dental, travel, and accident coverage. You are covered from the first day of your classes until August 31st, 2023.


What do my Benefits look like if I'm not on campus?

Your Benefits work exactly the same, or better, even if you’re remote. No matter where you’re located across Canada, you have full access to Your Health & Dental Benefits. You can visit any registered clinic in the country, submit a claim, and even access Virtual Service through the Direct2U Health Hub. Find out more in the sections below!


Your Benefits Card

First things first, you need your personalized Benefits Card to access your benefits!
Be sure to bring it with you when you visit the dentist office, the chiropractic clinic, the pharmacy, when you travel, or anywhere else you are covered. You can download your Benefits Card to your smartphone (Apple Wallet & Google Pay) for quick and easy access, or print a copy to put in your wallet.



Know Your Coverage

Now that you have your Benefits Card, where can you use it? What are you covered for?
You can read a quick overview of your coverage on the "Your Coverage" page. Learn about all of the extended health services you are covered for and take advantage of your benefits whether you’re on campus, at home, on placement; wherever you are!



How to Make a Claim

Some providers or clinics will have the option to direct-bill to your plan, meaning little to no out-of-pocket expenses! If a clinic can't direct-bill, you must pay for the service, then submit a claim for reimbursement. Find out how to submit a claim from anywhere through the Medavie Blue Cross™ mobile app or web portal!
