All registered UC Hastings students pay a mandatory Health Services fee allowing access to in-clinic healthcare and counseling services provided by Student Health Services. However, only enrollees in UC SHIP have coverage for medical, mental health, dental, vision, prescription and travel insurance benefits provided by the Plan.
Student Health Insurance is included in your tuition fees. The annual cost is divided into two payments, one for the Fall semester and one for the Spring/Summer semesters. Summer coverage is included for all students registered for Fall and Spring semesters. The insurance premiums for the 2015-2016 academic year are $1,849 for the Fall and $2,588 for the Spring/Summer, for a total of $4,437.
UC SHIP plan start dates for Fall 2015:
The end date for students on UC SHIP for the Spring 2015 semester is 8/9/15 at midnight.
In order to see a healthcare practitioner outside of Student Health Services, you must get a referral from a SHS medical/counseling practitioner. If you do not have a SHS referral, your insurance will not cover the cost of any visits outside of Student Health Services. Please call 415.565.4612 to schedule an appointment to meet with a doctor so that you can discuss referrals. Please note: Student Health Services referrals are not required during term breaks and summers, when the SHS is closed.
Graduating students who are currently enrolled in UC SHIP may enroll in the Voluntary Graduate Student Health Insurance Plan (Voluntary UC SHIP) for one semester after graduating. Coverage is elected by term.

Students enrolled in UC SHIP may enroll their dependents in the plan. Dependents must be re-enrolled each semester. Please note that, unlike student re-enrollment, dependent re-enrollment is not automatic. Dependent benefits differ from student benefits. To learn more about UC SHIP Dependent Benefits, see the UC SHIP 2015-2016 Dependent Medical Plan Summary.
Visiting students participating in UC Hastings programs but enrolled at another college or university are not eligible for coverage under the UC SHIP.
