Fellowship Recipients
Dental Plan

2024-25 Benefits Information
Information about Fellowship Recipient benefits for the 2024-25 academic year is available now on the University Health Plans website.

The dental plan is available to all eligible Fellowship Recipients, regardless of area of residence. Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield is the plan administrator.


This is a traditional plan that provides reimbursement for dental services from a network of participating providers, or at a lower benefit, outside the network from any licensed dentist of your choice. You are required to pay the dentist for normal charges and then file a claim for reimbursement when an out of network provider is used.
