Garnett-Powers & Associates is pleased to offer the Vanderbilt Graduate Academic Benefit Plan (VGABP). As a Graduate Student at Vanderbilt University, you have a choice of both a voluntary dental and voluntary vision plan. Assurant and VSP are nationally recognized dental and vision companies providing these two plans.
The dental plan offers a breadth of coverage through an HMO model. The vision plan is a PPO model, offering both in and out-of-network coverage. The VGABP web site has been developed to provide information on the plans, as well as provide a simple enrollment and payment method in order to ensure enrollment in the plans. Detailed benefit summaries, as well as the monthly rates for both the dental and vision plans are located on the left side of this page.

Newly Appointed Graduate Students - Enrolling in the Plans
In order to facilitate an efficient and timely enrollment process, the Initial Enrollment Form for this program must be completed online. Please first print the Enrollment/Payment Instructions found under the Enrollment link before completing the enrollment form. These instructions provide step-by-step information to assist you in completing the form and submitting your timely payment. If the Initial Enrollment Form is not completed properly, it could affect your enrollment in the plans and delay your access to service.
