Student Dental and Vision Plans for Academic Year 2017/2018
We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to participate in the Northwestern University student dental and vision insurance plans provided by Delta Dental of Illinois. As a student at Northwestern University, you have the option to enroll in the DeltaCare DHMO plan or the Dental PPO Plus plan, as well as the DeltaVision Select plan. You do not need to be a participant in the Northwestern University Student Health Insurance Plan (NU-SHIP) to participate in the dental or vision plans.
The 2017/2018 plan year open enrollment window opens August 1, 2017 and closes October 1, 2017. The second enrollment window opens February 1, 2018 and closes March 31, 2018. If you join the plan during the second open enrollment window, you will be offered the opportunity to enroll for the remaining 6 months of the plan year, as the next plan year begins on September 1st, 2018. If you do not enroll during one of these periods, you will not be eligible to participate until open enrollment for the next academic year, unless you have a qualifying life event such as; marriage, birth, adoption of a child, loss of other coverage or divorce.
If you have a qualifying life event outside of the open enrollment periods, please contact the Benefit Partners Group customer service team at (877) 247-8817.
