IDShield Provides the New University-Sponsored Identity Theft Protection Program

Identity theft can happen to anyone. To help protect you and your family, the University is offering IDShield, an identity theft protection product, beginning in April. IDShield has provided privacy and security monitoring and identity theft coverage since 2003, longer than anyone else in the market.

As a voluntary benefit, you’ll pay the low group rate to purchase coverage. Enrollment is done directly through IDShield's website.

With Dental, Prevention is Key

Teeth are meant to last for a lifetime, and healthy teeth will keep you healthy.

  • Visit your dentist regularly for preventive care: Exams. x-rays, cleanings, fluoride, and sealants can help you prevent tooth decay and gum disease
  • Tell your dentist about your medical conditions
  • Eat healthy: Dairy products and leafy greens are among foods that are good for dental health 
  • Brush and floss daily!

Staying on top of regular preventive dental care can save you money in the long run. Get up to speed on your dental plan’s benefits, and get your next dental appointment on the calendar.

Benefits Spotlight: Health Care That's Just a Call or Click Away

Your medical plan coverage includes three bonus services – a nurse line, walk-in clinics, and virtual care – that makes it easier for you to get care outside of regular office hours.
