Ever wondered how the UTSU health and dental plan fees have changed over time?  Probably not.  I have though, which is why I made this chart:

UTSU Health and Dental Plan Fees, 1998-2014

  • Fees listed are for one semester only.  To determine the fees for the full year, multiply by two.
  • % increase is on the year prior.
  • I have provided two sets of averages and standard deviations because changes in the earlier years were much more drastic.  The large reductions in 2003 and 2004 are most likely due to the fact that this is when the UTSU joined the Canadian Federation of Students and joined their healthcare plan.
  • Our health plan costs went up a lot last year (2012-2013) which is why the fee was raised 10%.  I’ll post more on this later.
