We recommend using Maple Leaf Dentistry in Peterborough. They offer quotes at book value for any dental work. For all major dental work, please ask your dentist to submit a pre-determination request to find out how much of your procedure will be covered.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any questions or concerns that you might have regarding your health coverage or how to file a claim. For more information about personal claims (how much will be covered), contact Green Shield’s Customer Service Centre at 1-888-711-1119, and ask for a claims simulation. The automated voice system can be difficult to navigate, so just hit “0″ for the operator.
Most claims can be processed instantly, after creating your personalized Green Shield account. Your policy number is TGA [your student number]-00, and the group policy number is 11111. Remember to omit the first ‘zero’ in your student number. To set up your account, and for all information regarding the plan and the claims process, please visit:
HPV Vaccine Information
There are currently two vaccines for HPV – they are Gardasil and Cervarix. Both of these vaccines are included in the Trent Grads benefit plan, however this does not confirm that you are necessarily eligible for coverage. To find out if you are eligible, contact Greenshield’s Customer Service Centre at 1-888-711-1119. An agent will run a claims simulation to find out the exact dollar amount the plan will cover, which in turn will give you a better idea about how much you can expect to pay out-of-pocket. Remember that HPV vaccines do have certain age eligibility criteria. For example, for Ontario residents the plan will ONLY cover plan members who are between the ages of 14 and 26.
The 2011-2012 academic year represented the inaugural year of Trent University’s independent Graduate Student Health Benefits Plan. Coverage is provided by Greenshield (www.greenshield.ca), and the health plan is co-administered by the Canadian Federation of Students (www.cfs-fcee.ca) and the Trent University Graduate Students’ Association (TGSA).
PLEASE NOTE: If you are an International Graduate Student, please see the International Student tab for a breakdown of your medical coverage.
NOTE: Health Coverage is available to Trent Alumni through C&C Insurance. Contact for more information on rates and detailed coverage.
