Your full service, on-campus health care provider!

Health Insurance: Are You Covered?
Dominican University recommends all students be covered by adequate health insurance. As of Fall 2015, health insurance is not required and Dominican University will no longer offer a student health care plan. The Wellness Center will help undergraduate and graduate students find affordable individual healthcare plans.
*International students: You are required to waive with an acceptable plan if you have F1 or J1 visa. If you are uninsured you will be enrolled in the $65/month ISP plan on dominicaninsurance.com. The charge will be placed on your student account each semester. Explore the benefits of this plan.
“DACA” or undocumented students are also eligible for this plan. Please contact the Wellness Center and ask them to add you to the enrollment list before classes start.
KNOW YOUR OPTIONS
Keeping the campus and YOU healthy and having access to healthcare is an essential part of a successful academic life. Now more than before many options exist for students to be insured:
You can be insured on your family plan until you are 26 years old. Document your existing health insurance coverage through our waiver process at Dominicaninsurance.com before the first day of class each semester. Your existing plan must meet federal requirements.
Visit DominicanInsurance.com for information on individual plans.
