Customer Question
Hello, I am a 22...
Hello, I am a 22 year old full time university student. I have very little contact (text only) with my biological parents, due to a history of mental illness and abuse on their part. I am covered under their Alberta Blue Cross coverage, which is supposed to last me until I am either graduated my first degree, or turn 25. Due to their high level of income, I am not eligible for any financial aid or assistance.
They recently informed me that they have set my health coverage to expire in April of this year. I will not graduate until April of next year. They are unwilling to change the paperwork. My question is, should I have to obtain my own coverage, with the cost being quite significant, is that something I would be able to take to small claims and ask them to cover? Seeing as I should technically be covered anyway.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this,
David.

Who told you that they will not cover you after April and why are they choosing that cut-off?

In terms of the financial assistance have you made it clear to the government and/or university that you don't have any ties with your parents?

Also, how many years ago did you graduate from high school?
