Dalhousie student health insurance coverage is much better than most students realize, as the Dal Gazette has pointed out. The Dalhousie AIM Student VIP health insurance plan has excellent coverage for several avenues of treatment, including naturopathic medicine. Starting 2 years ago the AIM Health Group has partnered with the Dalhousie Student Union to offer top notch health insurance coverage to students when they are treated at VIP network clinics.
Essentially Free Healthcare
For clinics which are members of the AIM Student VIP Network program, including my Upper Tantallon practice at MacLeod Naturopathic, students have 100% coverage with direct billing and no co-pay! If you are a Dalhousie student and you haven’t opted out of the Dalhousie Student Union health insurance plan you can take advantage of this opportunity and essentially receive naturopathic care for free! This includes nutritional counseling, acupuncture, herbal medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and more. Unfortunately Dalhousie students in the faculty of agriculture are not covered under the AIM student VIP plan.
