Dental and Vision Insurance Coverage
Cardinal Care covers an initial visit to a dentist for injury to natural and sound teeth only.
Cardinal Care also covers one annual eye examination. Please contact the Insurance and Referral Office at Vaden so that a referral can be entered for your eye exam if you intend to use the Stanford Eye Clinic. To help you explore other options for coverage, the Vaden Health Center Insurance and Referral Office maintains a list of local opticians, optometrists, and opthalmologists that extend discounts to Stanford students.
Optum Health Allies
OptumHealth Allies is a dental and vision care discount program offered by HealthAllies®, Inc . It is not an insurance program, but rather a way to receive significant discounts on a wide array of services. We at Vaden Health Center endorse this program as an inexpensive and convenient way to receive discounted dental and vision care.
Other Dental Coverage Options
The Insurance and Referral Office distributes information about voluntary individual preferred provider dental plans. To request a dental resource packet with information about these dental options (including premiums and how to enroll), stop by the Vaden Insurance and Referral Office or submit your name and address in a HelpSU ticket.
