We embrace a proactive approach to health. Prioritizing preventive care is one of the best ways to stay healthy. That's why our health and dental insurance plans include a variety of preventive services for you and your loved ones.

Our benefits package is designed to offer peace of mind and nurture your overall well-being. We encourage you to take advantage of the preventive services that are included in these plans.


The university's health insurance plans cover a wide range of preventive services at no cost to you when you visit an in-network provider. These include:

  • Annual physical exams, including routine physicals, gynecological exams, mammograms, and regular pediatric visits. These check-ups can help detect health issues early.
  • Immunizations are also included. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend staying up to date on vaccinations to protect yourself and your family from preventable diseases.

Remember, these preventive services are most effective when you make them a regular part of your health care routine.


Good oral health is a vital part of our overall health. The university's dental plan covers:

  • Check-ups and cleanings: Two visits per year are covered for check-ups and cleanings, including X-rays to catch problems early.
  • Preventive care includes treatments like sealants and fluoride. These help keep tooth decay at bay, and are covered up to age 19.

Regular dental visits can catch oral problems early and help keep your teeth and gums healthy.
