Students in the ELIP program are covered by Guardme.
This type of coverage is in addition to the Basic Health Insurance, GSHIP. The student governments have also negotiated with Green Shield Canada and Industrial-Alliance Pacific Life Insurance Company to provide extra health coverage for dental, prescription drug and vision expenses. This fee appears on the financial screen (SIS) as ‘Drug/Dental Plan’.
