IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT UC SHIP: WAIVERS, NEW ENROLLMENTS, AND DEPENDENT ENROLLMENT
New Students: If you are a new student to Hastings, please read and find important information here. All new students who do not wish to enroll in the University of California Student Health Insurance Program (UC SHIP) must complete an online waiver. The waiver deadline is January 27, 2016 at 11:59 PM. If a waiver is not submitted by the deadline, you will automatically be enrolled and billed for UC SHIP.
Continuing Students: If you waived out of the Student Health Insurance in the Fall semester, your waiver is valid for the entire academic year. A new waiver will be required for the 2016-2017 academic year. If you’d like to enroll in UCSHIP Student Health Insurance for Spring 2016, you must make a payment of $2588.00 to Fiscal Services by January 27th. Please contact SHS at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415.565.4612 if you wish to enroll in UC SHIP for Spring 2016. For information on the waiver criteria, go to the second paragraph on this page.

REFERRALS MADE OVER WINTER BREAK
If you have UC SHIP and have self-referred to an MD over the break, you need to obtain a referral from Student Health Services in order to continue seeing this physician. Without a written referral from SHS, future visits to that MD will not be covered by UC SHIP.
DID YOU KNOW…
Flu season is here. Per CDC recommendations, everyone 6 months of age and older should receive annual influenza vaccination. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your body to develop an immune response. Get vaccinated now so that you will be protected. In the United States, influenza season usually begins in October and can last until May. For more information re: the seasonal flu vaccines go to the CDC.
Flu vaccines are available by appointment at Student Health Services for $15. Online prepayment is required. Prepay through webadvisor. If you have UC SHIP insurance, you can get fully reimbursed for this charge by submitting a claim form with attached receipt. Claim forms are available online or at SHS.
