Health Service Eligibility

Student Eligibility

All Dartmouth students who are classified as active in the student information system (Banner), including those not taking classes or who are on a leave/off term, are eligible for services and treatments provided by the Health Service.  Health Service eligibility is dependent upon student status, not insurance coverage.  Students who waive the Dartmouth Student Group Health Plan are still eligible to receive services and treatments at the Health Service.  All students must comply with the College's health insurance and pre-arrival medical requirements. 

 

When Eligibility Begins

Students whose first term is fall, eligibility to receive services and treatments at the Health Service begins August 1.  For students whose first term is winter, spring or summer their eligibility begins the day prior to their first day of classes. 

Students who are required to be on campus as part of a College sponsored program, regardless of the time of year, are eligible for care at the Health Service.

When Eligibility Ends

Eligibility to receive services and treatments at the Health Service ends when the student graduates or enrollment at Dartmouth College is terminated by withdrawal or separation.  Students will continue to be eligible until the first day of the term following their separation.

 

Health Service Eligibility Program

Students who are on a leave term or not enrolled in classes, but who are classified as active in the College Information System (Banner), may enroll into the Health Service Eligibility Program for a non-refundable fee. Students enrolled in the Health Service Eligibility Program receive the same access as registered students who are paying the health access fee and are also subject to the same fee for service schedules as full-time registered students.

Dependent Eligibility

Spouses and domestic partners who are enrolled in either the Dartmouth Student Group Health Dependent Plan or the Health Service Spouse & Domestic Partner Primary Care Program are eligible to receive services and treatments at the Health Service, and are subject to the same fee schedule as students paying the health access fee.  Charges incurred by dependents will be posted to the student's tuition account if not paid at the time of service.

Please Note:  The Health Service does not provide services or treatments to dependent children. 

 

Health Service Spouse & Domestic Partner Primary Care Program

The Dartmouth College Health Service welcomes eligible spouses and domestic partners to enroll into the Spouse & Domestic Partner Primary Care Program.  This program provides access to all Dick's House services, except Counseling which offers spouses or domestic partners of an enrolled student a courtesy visit so they may be referred to a community therapist.   

Only spouses and domestic partners of students who are themselves eligible for the Health Service may enroll in the Spouse and Domestic Partner Primary Care Program.  Domestic Partner is defined as a same sex partner by Dartmouth College. 

Pre-registration is required.  Visit the Patient Accounts Office to complete a Spouse & Domestic Partner Primary Care Program enrollment form along with a health history form and proof of insurance that meets Dartmouth's insurance requirement.
