Enrolling in the Dental Health Plan

Participation in the Boston University Dental Health Plan is voluntary. You may elect this coverage within 30 days of your new employee benefits orientation meeting, during the annual open enrollment period, or if you have a qualified change in your family or employment status.

New employees must enroll online via Employee Self Service at BUworks Central. Alternatively, you may complete a Benefits Enrollment Form. This form will also authorize a payroll deduction to pay for your share of the cost.

If you choose a family membership, coverage is available only for the family members who are listed on your enrollment. If you wish to enroll newly eligible family members (for example, an adopted child or a new spouse) because you have a qualified change in your family status, you may do so by completing the Flexible Benefit Plan Mid-Year Change Form to Human Resources within 30 days of the qualifying event.
