In addition to the health insurance coverage offered, the university also negotiated for an optional fully-insured dental PPO benefit plan provided by UnitedHealthCare Insurance Company. The optional Dental PPO Plan is intended for students who have higher dental needs or who want a higher level of coverage than is offered for dental care by the included UnitedHealth Allies discount card program. The optional Dental PPO Plan provides 100% coverage for preventive & diagnostic services and 80% coverage for basic services and 50% coverage for major services (for Preferred Providers, reduced benefits for non-network providers). There is a $50 annual plan deductible for basic and major services (annual plan deductible does not apply to preventive & diagnostic services). The annual maximum is $750 per person per plan year.
Students are not required to purchase the optional Dental PPO Plan because it is offered on a voluntary basis to W&M students. Students may choose to enroll in the voluntary dental PPO plan even if you do not enroll in the university-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan. Students and their dependents must enroll in the Dental PPO Plan on an annual basis only and the enrollment deadline is September 15th with no enrollments being considered after that date. You must enroll directly with UnitedHealthcare StudentResources either online through your UHCSR MyAccount for students enrolled in the health plan or on the UHCSR William & Mary page, using the Dental-Student Plan EXPLORE POLICY link and then clicking the Enroll Now button for students who are not enrolled in the W&M Medical-Student Plan. The '21-'22 annual premium per insured person is $515.16.
