Policies and procedures
DCU staff can join a Group Scheme with VHI, and the university will facilitate payment through payroll. However, we advise that all staff should do a thorough comparison of costs and services from all health insurance providers before purchasing health insurance (see below for more details)
DCU Group Scheme number (VHI): 48/4318
Renewal date: 22nd September every year (staff can join at any time)
Steps to join:
1. Contact VHI directly, quoting your staff number on the application form.
2. VHI notify DCU of your contribution amount to be deducted weekly/monthly from your payroll.
3. If you wish to transfer from another group scheme, contact VHI and quote our group number and your staff number and they will facilitate the transfer.
For more information, contact VHI.
