Individual Dental/Vision Insurances

Your KU Student Health Insurance does not cover Dental or Vision Insurance. For a short time, you can purchase supplementary annual coverage for DENTAL AND/OR VISION insurance directly from UnitedHealthcare StudentResources (UHCSR). The policy covers you from January 1, 2017 through July 31, 2017. The short Open enrollment period for the Dental and Vision is January 1 - February 14, 2017. Dental and/or Vision coverage cannot be purchased outside of the Open enrollment period. Use the Preferred Provider Search buttons below to see which Doctors accept the insurance. This coverage is available for you and your dependents.
