Student Dental Insurance

All eligible students will be automatically enrolled in the University Sponsored Dental Insurance Plan.  

The OHSU Sponsored Dental Insurance Plan is offered by Aetna Student Health.  The OHSU Student Dental plan is a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO).  A benefit summary is provided by Aetna Life Insurance Company for some of the more frequently performed dental procedures. Under this plan, you may choose at the time of service either a PPO participating dentist or any nonparticipating dentist.  With the PPO plan, savings are possible because the PPO participating dentists have agreed to provide care at a negotiated fee schedule.  Nonparticipating benefits are subject to reasonable and customary charge limits.  The Dental plan is also available to all dependents, including spouses, children and domestic partners.

Please visit the Aetna Student Health - Dental Plan Enrollment Information for full plan details and dependent enrollment.  For PPO coverage detail for the 2014-2015 plan year, please read the Aetna Dental Plan Benefits Member Handbook

PLEASE NOTE: Dental insurance is required of all eligible programs.  There is a dental waiver application embedded in the online medical waiver if you wish to waive both.  Should you want to retain the medical insurance but are still interested in a dental waiver, this too can be completed on the Aetna website via a paper verification form.
