In-Active Period

You may be in a in-active period each year while GSC collects and updates your enrolment information. Don’t worry. You can still submit paper claims for health or dental services. We will process your claims on file once your information is updated.

Once the enrolment is complete and the in-active period ends, you can sign up for GSC everywhere. Through GSC everywhere, you can:

  • Submit claims electronically
  • Sign up for direct deposit (to get paid faster!)
  • Read your full benefits booklet
  • Search for a provider near you
  • Connect to the Change4Life® health portal
  • Search drugs by DIN to see if coverage eligibility
  • And much more!

You can even submit claims right from your mobile device. Just download the GSC everywhere app. Could it get any easier?

You’ll need your GSC ID number to sign up for GSC everywhere online and in the app after the in-active period. Remember, your GSC ID number is your three-letter code school code, your student number and “-00” (example: TRU111222333-00).
