Health Insurance Fee (BUSU): Go to top of document
As a result of the referendum in Spring 2001, the Brock University Students' Union (BUSU) is now offering an extended Health Plan to all students who are enrolled in the equivalent of 3 or more full credits in September and are contributing to BUSU fees. This program is mandatory and provides coverage for 80% of prescription drugs and a variety of other physio and chiropractic programs. Details of the Health Plan can be found on the BUSU website (http://www.busu.net) or at the Health Plan office located in the Students' Center. The fee for the plan is $115 (subject to change). Students that already have comparable coverage will have the opportunity to waive this fee (details of this process are available on-line as well). It is each student's responsibility to determine their status with regards to the BUSU extended Health Care Plan; be sure to make an informed decision.
