Student Health Insurance Policy

All students are urged to maintain adequate health insurance coverage.  If you have existing health insurance coverage or another plan for paying your medical expenses, you must complete the Waiver Form at www.dominicaninsurance.com. Please note: Existing coverage will be verified.

If you do not have existing coverage, Dominican University strongly encourages you to enroll for the Student Health Insurance Plan. The plan is customized to balance affordability with coverage that will help most students manage their health care needs while in college.

Students studying on a F1 or J1 visa are automatically enrolled in the student health insurance plan unless they waive coverage by documenting comparable coverate at www.dominicaninsurance.com.

Dominican's student health insurance plan provides great coverage for a very reasonable price. This plan is rated as compliant with the Affordable Care Act and is an important asset for college students.  All care at the Wellness Center is covered 100%.

Go to www.dominicaninsurance.com to enroll or to complete the waiver process.

If you have any questions, please call Dominican University’s customer service team at
(800) 452-5772 for help with enrollment or the waiver process.
