Discounts range from 10-50% depending upon the services utilized. The annual cost is $29. Again, this is a discount program and is not health insurance.

Through our affiliation with NYU, the College of Denistry Stu-Dent plan is now available to NYU-Poly students. This program is not associated with the NYU-Poly student health insurance plan.
