Disability Insurance After Graduation
(DMD and Advanced Standing students only)
All registered student are automatically enrolled in a disability insurance plan through the University. This plan offers you the right to maintain coverage upon completion of your dental program under exceptional terms.
Your group long-term disability insurance is portable. At the completion of your dental training, covered students are eligible to convert to an individual, guaranteed renewable contract with up to $2,000 monthly benefit without medical underwriting. This policy has a specialty specific definition of disability for the entire benefit period and is subject to financial underwriting. To continue your insurance, you must contact InsMed Insurance Agency, Inc. by telephone at 800-214-7039. Be sure to apply for the conversion and pay the premium for the coverage before 30 days past your date of graduation.
Fourth-year students have the opportunity to apply for a supplemental individual non-cancelable policy that allows students to increase coverage in the future without additional medical underwriting. Total amount of deferred coverage can be as much as $8,000 per month with gender-neutral rates for women. This additional policy does require medical and financial underwriting. These policies are offered with unisex rates, which translate to substantial savings for females.
