DCU has a VHI group scheme, number 00004318. Our renewal date is 22nd September each year, but staff can join at any time. The individual deals directly with VHI ensuring to quote your staff number on your application form. They in turn will notify DCU of your contribution amount, to be deducted weekly/monthly from your payroll. If you wish to transfer from another group scheme you just have to contact VHI and quote our group number and your DCU staff number and they will look after all the paper work. For more information http://www.vhi.ie/ or telephone 1890 444 444.
Other Private Health Insurance Companies
Currently DCU does not have a group scheme set up with any of these companies but full details are available on the links below and if you decide to sign up with a different company, payment of your policy is between yourself and the health insurance company.
