Student Health Insurance

At Dominican College we value the health and wellness of our students. We understand that physical and mental health problems can seriously hinder a student’s path to success, not only while pursuing their degree here, but in all facets of their lives.   Dominican College is very pleased to announce a new student health insurance plan for the students attending the College.

Through the Dominican College Student Health Insurance Plan, students who may not have private health insurance coverage have the ability to enroll in a health insurance plan underwritten by United Health Care.  

For the 2013-14 academic year, health insurance enrollment is required for all student athletes.  All other registered students are eligible to enroll and may purchase the coverage on a voluntary basis.

For Student-Athletes, if your current health insurance plan does not provide a minimum of comparable coverage to the Student Insurance Plan—or if you do not have insurance—you must purchase and enroll in the Dominican College Student Health Insurance Plan.  If your health insurance plan provides adequate coverage, you must actively acknowledge coverage of insurance by August 31, 2013 in the Athletic Training Office. For more information, please contact Samantha James at 848-848-7709. 

The plan is compliant with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as required by Health and Human Services and offers nationwide hospitals, doctors, specialists, and mental health providers. 

Here are just a few benefits to enrolling in the Dominican College Student Health Insurance Plan:

  • Wellness Coverage and preventative medications are covered at 100% including routine immunizations.
  • Access to United HealthCare’s PPO network of doctors, specialists and hospitals close to campus and home.
  • Worldwide coverage as well as travel assistance, medical evacuation and repatriation coverage.
  • Direct Pay enrollment through Gallagher Koster.
  • In Network coverage at 80% for most services.
  • Policy Maximum up to $500,000 per policy year.
