Health Care Plans


Princeton University provides benefits-eligible employees with comprehensive health insurance plans that offer the flexibility to select coverage that best meets your and your family’s medical needs. You can choose from several medical and dental plans and a vision care plan. You can cover yourself only, or you and your spouse, your same-sex domestic or same-sex civil union partner and your eligible dependent children. 

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010. Princeton University believes the active health care plan is a "grandfathered health plan" under the PPACA.
All dependents must be verified to be eligible for coverage. You must bring your dependent eligibility documentation to Human Resources.
You can count on support from knowledgeable and responsive HR staff when you have a question or problem. Just call or send us an e-mail. We’re here to help! 

While the University intends to continue each of the benefit plans, the University reserves the right to terminate or amend any plan, at any time, and for any reason.
