Dear Yale Student:

We are pleased to announce that this fall the University will once again offer graduate and professional students both a dental plan and a vision plan. Additionally, for your convenience, enrollment and payment for the plans will be completed online.

The dental plan is offered through Delta Dental of Connecticut, America’s largest, most experienced dental benefits carrier, offering national coverage and providing quality, cost-effective dental programs and services for participants. The vision plan is offered through EyeMed Vision Care, a leading vision benefits company dedicated to improving the vision of its members through comprehensive vision wellness plans.

Enrollment is not automatic for either plan. Applications and full payment must be submitted online at http://gradprofdenteye.yale.edu/ by September 15.

Below you will find an overview of both plans with enrollment information, charts summarizing the benefits, and the fee structure. Please review the information carefully in order to ensure that you do not miss this important opportunity.
