Medical Benefit Forms

For forms involving Medical Services Plan, Group Medical or otherwise, please check the Human Resources Website. If you have any questions about which form to use, stop by our office or drop us an e-mail. Please note that all forms are also available at our office, AQ 5129.

Extended Medical Form

If you are a student, you are automatically signed up for your SFSS or GSS extended health care plans in your student fees. We also have a plan that you can choose to opt into. This plan can be stacked with the student extended health plan. You can enroll in this plan by filling out the form of the Enrollment Application for Group Benefits and submitting it to benefits@sfu.ca. Download the form to opt-in HERE (2023).


If you want SFU to cover your MSP/ISHF and the MSP/ISHF for your spouse/partner and all dependent children, the form you want on the Human Resources Website is "Group Medical Services Plan (MSP) Application."

NOTE: in the section above section 1 - the first three blanks should be left blank, and for 'Employment Number' put your student ID or your employment # if you are not a student.
