Student Health Insurance- University Health Plans (UHP)

Under University policy, all full-time Rutgers Biomedical Health Science (RBHS) students as well as part-time RBHS students who participate in clinical experience as part of their educational programs are required to be covered by health and accident insurance.  All students will be automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan unless an online Waiver Form is completed and submitted each year by the student who wishes to waive coverage.  The Waiver Form must be complete online by the September 30th deadline.  The University, in conjunction with United Healthcare Insurance Company, offers a plan which fulfills the RBHS insurance requirements.

Student Dental Insurance

Rutgers offers our students, postdoctoral fellows and their dependents the DeltaCare dental insurance plan. Enrollment in this plan is voluntary; it is not required insurance.

Students and postdoctoral fellows interested in participating in the plan will enroll on line through University Health Plans (UHP). The on-line enrollment form, plan benefits and highlights and a list of network dentists can be found by Clicking Here.

July 15 is the enrollment deadline for coverage from August 1 to July 31. Deadlines of August 15 and September 15, have been established as well for September 1 and October 1 effective dates respectively. Students who enroll after the first deadline of July 15 may not appear on their dentist's roster until the first week of the effective date, and their dentist will need to call DeltaCare to verify eligibility. The premium will not be pro-rated for the September and October effective dates. Students with questions regarding the plan or the enrollment process should be referred to UHP via email at, or telephone at (800) 437-6448.
