Delta Dental Plan Option
for Rhode Island Students

2023-2024 Policy Year

Dear Rhode Island Students,

University Health Plans is pleased to offer students attending colleges and universities in RI an option to enroll on to the Delta Dental PPO Plus Premier Plan. You may enroll in this plan on a VOLUNTARY basis; it is not required insurance.

As with any insurance plan, please make sure that you have read the Plan Highlights & Benefit Information before enrolling in the dental plan. The copayments on the PPO Plus Premier flyer are subject to change. The most up-to-date copayment schedule can be found on at any time during the policy year.

PARTICIPATING PROVIDERS: This plan utilizes both the Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier networks. Both networks have participating providers nationwide and offer discounted fees. You do not need to select a primary care dentist under either network. You will receive the greatest out-of-pocket savings when visiting a Delta Dental PPO network provider, however, the benefit levels are not different should you select a Delta Dental Premier network provider. When searching for providers through the Provider Search, click on National Coverage and then PPO for the greatest value. If your dentist of choice is not listed, you may then search on the Premier network.

Students and dependents who wish to enroll in this plan MUST submit the online enrollment form and pay the full premium amount online via credit card no later than midnight on the posted deadline for their selected coverage period. The enrollment deadline for coverage effective January 1, 2024 through August 31, 2024 has been extended to February 15, 2024. This is the final enrollment deadline for the 2023-2024 policy year. Enrollment will be processed AFTER the deadline..

The total cost for coverage is as follows:

  Premium Admin Fee* Total Cost
Student Only: $274.00 $20.00 $294.00
Student & 1 Dependent: $548.00 $20.00 $568.00
