The dental school has a mandatory health insurance program for all students through the University sponsored plan with Anthem Student Health. If you have any questions about student health insurance, please call 209.946.2027. You can view the health insurance "Benefits Summary" in the Downloads section of this page.
Students electing not to participate in this plan will have the option to opt out by providing a waiver and proof of comparable health insurance coverage. Insurance premiums are assessed with tuition and other fees.
In addition to the health insurance program, the dental school offers Pacific Health Services. Our nurse practitioner (NP) provides a full spectrum of services. The NP is available to all students, whether enrolled in the insurance program or not. To make an appointment, you can go online at MyHealth@Pacific or call 209.946.2315.
