ACAD students have access to a wide variety of medical services on our neighboring SAIT campus, a short five minute walk from the ACAD front doors. A Nurse is in attendance Monday through Friday for the Fall, Winter and Spring Sessions. (During breaks and Summer Session reduced hours are in effect.) Doctors, chiropractors and massage therapists are available by appointment. Medical records and information are confidential and information will not be released without a student's written permission.

As a member of ACADSA you are covered by the Student Health and Dental Benefits Plan. An information booklet with basic information about the plan and your pay direct card is available in the ACADSA office (located in the Main Mall beside the Marion Nicoll Gallery Room 335) or downloadable here. Complete coverage details and electronic claim forms are available at www.ihaveaplan.ca.
Full time students are assessed a mandatory coverage premium as part of their tuition and student fees in the fall semester. Coverage extends until August of the next year. Family coverage is also available. Students with similar alternate coverage can choose to opt out of the plan and receive a premium refund. Visit www.ihaveaplan.ca for opt-out forms.
Artstream students, part-time students and students who begin their programs in the winter semester may register for the plan directly at www.ihaveaplan.ca.
