We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to participate in student dental and vision insurance plans provided by Delta Dental of Illinois, for Northwestern University students and their families. As a student at Northwestern University, you are eligible to enroll in the PPO Plus Premier Plan or the DeltaCare DHMO Plan, as well as the DeltaVision Select Plan. The plans are available for a duration of either 6 or 12 months.
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 current plan year begins September 1, 2017 and ends August 31, 2018.
