Students who have their own health or insurance plan may apply to waive the automatic enrollment into the Dartmouth Student Group Health Plan (DSGHP) by completing the waiver process by July 1st of each academic year.  (For Exchange students, the waiver deadline is one week prior to their first term at Dartmouth for each academic year they are enrolled.  Please contact the DSGHP office for information on this.)

Students who wish to be enrolled into the DSGHP do not need to do anything, as enrollment is automatic. Students may also enroll their qualifying dependents by completing the Dependent Application. (See DSGHP Forms for Dependent Application)

Please Note: Most Medicaid/Medicare plans outside of VT & NH plans, EPOs, HMOs, and International plans do not meet the requirements to waive. J1 visa holders are not permitted to waive.
