Important Upcoming Opt-Out Dates for CESAX*/ TMAPS Health & Dental Plan

Part-time undergraduate degree students beginning classes for the first time this academic year in the Fall 2022 term will be charged $257.47 for the CESAX Health and Dental Plan. The charge is reflected on your tuition and ancillary fee statement for health and dental benefits provided by CESAX. Those charged may be eligible to opt-out of the CESAX Health & Dental Plan coverage.

REMINDER: Students need to opt-out of the CESAX* health and dental plan each year and there is no automatic opt out. If you enroll in the Fall session I encourage you to put a calendar reminder in September to opt-out, or if you start the academic year in the Winter term, a calendar reminder in January. In order to be eligible to opt-out, you must provide proof of your alternate coverage information, or your opt–out will be incomplete and you will not receive a refund. If you set those reminders, you will be ahead and well aware of when the refund deadlines are approaching so you can apply for your opt-out refund to help facilitate your opt-out refund process.


  • Opt-out refunds are issued once per academic year, therefore you only have the one opportunity at the beginning of your studies, each year.
  • Opt-out refunds from CESAX are distributed in the form of e-transfers directly to you, and NOT to your RAMSS account.
