Student Dental Insurance

The 2014-15 Northwestern Student Dental Plan, sponsored by Garnett-Powers & Associates, will be available for enrollment starting July 28th, 2014. The program includes two comprehensive dental plans offered through Cigna, an HMO and a PPO available for your choice.  If you select one of the plans, your coverage will begin on September 1st, 2014 and continue through August 31st, 2015.

Open Enrollment

The Open Enrollment period for the Cigna Dental Plans is July 28th  – August 11th. This is the period of time where currently enrolled students may make changes, as to change from one plan to the other or add dependents. It is also the time that new students, or students who may have missed last year’s enrollment window, may enroll in one of the plans.  This is the only time students may enroll.
