Touro College of Dental Medicine requires all dental students to maintain active health insurance. All students are automatically enrolled in and charged for the Student Health Insurance Plan each year. If you have another insurance plan and would like to waive the Touro College of Dental Medicine - Sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan, a waiver request must be submitted as well as a copy of your Health Insurance ID card. Please see Waiver Process below.
DESCRIPTION OF THE 2020/2021 TCDM STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAM
In an effort to reduce the rise in premium for the Touro (TouroCOM, Touro Pharmacy, NYMC and TCDM) student insurance plan, Touro reviewed proposals from multiple insurance carriers and has selected Aetna Student Health (ASH) for the 2020/2021 school year.
The Touro student plan design will remain the same and the ASH network overlaps with the United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR). The change should not affect any continuity of care. If you are currently under the care of a provider that you are concerned is a Preferred Provider in the ASH network please contact HSA Consulting, Inc. (HSAC) at 888-978-8355 and they will assist you in verifying your provider on the Aetna Network.
The Touro student insurance plan is pending approval through the State of New York so information on the premium can not be released at this time. You will be provided updates via email when more information is available.
The TCDM Sponsored Health Insurance Plan is a Preferred Provider Plan that has been designed specifically for TCDM students and is underwritten by United Healthcare Student Resources. With an emphasis on wellness, the plan is designed to provide full coverage for medical care including annual routine physicals and immunizations.
The 2020/2021 TCDM student health insurance plan design is a PPO plan, with in-network and out-of-network benefits, it is an ACA compliant Platinum level plan.
All students will be charged for student only coverage in the TCDM Sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan prior to the start of each academic year. The charge to the student's account will be removed if an approved waiver is granted.
