Opt Out

As a current International Student studying at KPU, you will be enrolled in guard.me Insurance plan as of January 1, 2024. This plan is mandatory for students who are studying in Canada.

If you already have valid coverage through BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) you may be able to opt out of the guard.me plan once you have received your guard.me policy number.

For the opt-out to be accepted, you must successfully complete the opt out form, including the alternate insurance declaration and identify your start date and end date under MSP at the time you apply to opt out.

Your application to opt-out will be declined if:

  • The period of coverage under MSP ends prior to the end of the term
  • MSP coverage starts after your guard.me policy start date

If you submit everything by the deadline and qualify for the opt out, we will advise KPU of your eligibility and the charge will be reversed on your KPU account within 10 to 14 business days.
