Student dependents between 19 and 24 years of age are eligible for coverage under the UNB Health and Dental plans.

Registration for overage student dependents remains the same in that you must notify UNB Human Resources by completing a “Group Supplementary Health and/or Dental Plan Overage Dependent Registration” form each year before September 1st. The form is located on the UNB HR website at

If you have any questions or need a new card, please contact UNB Human Resources & Organizational Development at (506) 453-4648 in Fredericton or (506) 648-5941 in Saint John.

Please Note: 

(1)  It is the responsibility of the plan member to notify UNB Human Resources & Organizational Development of any changes in status for his/her student dependent within 30 days in order to avoid any financial or insurability complications.

(2)  For student dependents studying outside of their province of residence, stays of 180 days or more require approval from New Brunswick Medicare (or equivalent).  The approval should grant an extension of medical coverage beyond the 180-day threshold.  Please forward a copy of the approval to Human Resources.  Presentation of the approval will be required at time of claim.
