Available Plan

Dental II is the dental insurance plan offered to regular faculty and staff with at least a 50% appointment and their eligible dependents.

If you are unsure if someone would be considered an eligible dependent, please visit Dependent Eligibility for UI Insurance Plans for more information.

To increase educational opportunities for third and fourth year dental students, the College of Dentistry and University Benefits created the Student Dental Clinics Incentive (for Dental II and House Staff Dental participants).

Dental Insurance Coverage for Adult Children

Children may be covered until the end of the year in which they turn 26. Coverage for children who are full-time students or disabled can continue as long as they continue in that status. The IRS has determined that this coverage is taxable. 

Cost of Dental II

The university provides full cost of single and double spouse family coverage for the Dental II plan premium and 80% of the coverage cost for the other family status options. 

To review the monthly premium amounts for each coverage option, please visit our Dental II Rates page. 

Using Dental II

You may see any dental care provider you wish. However, how much you pay for care will depend on the benefit level of the provider you choose.

This plans includes three benefit tiers. You do not need to pick a tier. The tier of the provider you choose for care automatically determines how much you pay. The lower the tier, the lower the cost to you.
