How to Access your CSA or GSA Benefit Plan
As a student at the U of G you may be eligible under the Supplemental Health Care portion of your Student Health Plan for benefits to help fund the cost of a psycho-educational assessment (completed by a registered psychologist or registered psychological associate).
What do I need to do?
1. Get a referral
Meet with the LD Specialist at the CSD to get a referral to a psychologist. She will discuss various funding options with you, including the Student Benefit Plan and help you start the process.
2. Obtain a prescription
Obtain a prescription for the services of a psychologist. Take the letter provided by the LD Specialist to either your family physician; -or- Dr. Caldwell at Student Health Services in the John T. Powell building. The prescription MUST be obtained prior to beginning the assessment.
Physicians cannot back date a prescription. Keep the prescription in a safe place until after the assessment has been completed.
3. Undertake the assessment
Undertake the assessment. Pay the psychologist for the assessment and get a receipt that says "paid in full".
4. Submit your claim
Submit your claim form to your Student Benefit's Plan. Attach a copy of the receipt along with your prescription.
Copies of the claim forms are available at the CSA/GSA Student Benefits Office, level 1 U.C.
Can I co-ordinate benefits with another plan?
If you have coverage under another plan (parent or spouse) you may be able to co-ordinate benefits between both plans. In this case, submit your claim to the Student Benefit Plan first, and then to the other plan as directed by your Health Care Provider.
