UC SHIP specializes in you and your health.
The University of California Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) is a comprehensive major medical insurance plan, providing medical, counseling, prescription, vision and dental services. The year-round plan, which uses the Anthem Blue Cross PPO Network, is tailored to meet the health and wellness needs of graduate students.
UC SHIP was developed to protect you from unexpected health care costs that could create a financial barrier to your graduation. The University of California makes no profit from UC SHIP—it’s financed by students, for students—and every year we do our best to improve the plan. A healthy lifestyle is far easier for you when your Student Health Services (SHS) is right on campus and outstanding health care is affordable.
As a UC Hastings student, you are automatically enrolled in UC SHIP, and billed for the premium. And as a member of the UC Family, you can receive specialty care at low student rates at UC’s five nationally ranked medical centers. We’re proud that we can provide you with this exceptionally valuable benefit so that you’ll have fewer personal and financial worries if you ever become ill or get injured. If you already have health insurance that will continue through 2015-2016, and you wish to waive enrollment in UC SHIP, you may apply for the waiver online.
