Making a Claim
Claims can be submitted online, through your provider or by paper claim. You will need your GSC ID number, which can be found on your GSC benefit card in GSC everywhere. Each eligible member of your family has their own individual ID number for claiming purposes. All of them are on your GSC benefit card.
Keep your records in MySTF up to date to ensure your claim is processed without delays. To ensure your claim is processed without delay, log in to MySTF and make sure your records are up to date. This includes adding or removing your spouse and/or dependant children, uploading student verification and updating your spouse’s coordination of benefit information.
Available Claim Submissions
- Ask your provider to submit your claim electronically at the time of service. Eligible providers include pharmacists, vision providers, and health care practitioners.

You have 15 months from the date an expense is incurred to submit your claim, with the exception of out-of-country claims for which deadlines vary by province of residence.
