UC Hastings requires all enrolled students to have health insurance coverage. UC Hastings has partnered with the University of California system to offer students access to UC's Student Health Insurance Plan for graduate students (UC SHIP). UC SHIP is a health insurance plan tailored to the health care needs of graduate students. It features year-round, world-wide coverage using the Anthem PPO network, Anthem Blue View Vision plan, and Delta Dental PPO plan.
All students are automatically enrolled in and billed for UC SHIP. If a student already has health insurance and that health insurance will continue through the student's enrollment for the academic year at UC Hastings, he/she may opt to waive out of UC SHIP by completing the online waiver form. The waiver system for the Fall 2016 semester will open in June. Please check back for updated information. The waiver deadline for the Fall is September 7, 2016. Students who successfully waive UC SHIP must have proof of coverage by another medical health insurance plan that meets UC Hastings' minimum criteria. International students, please note, that your insurer must have a U.S. affiliate office that will process and pay claims in U.S. dollars. Please note that The University of California recently changed its waiver criteria.
The UC SHIP insurance premiums for the 2015-2016 school year are $1,849 for the Fall and $2,588 for the Spring/Summer for a total of $4,437. The premiums for 2016-2017 will be posted as soon as available.
UC Hastings requires ALL new students to submit two forms.
Please submit these forms by August 1, 2016.
Please mail completed forms to Student Health Services, UC Hastings College of the Law, 200 McAllister Street, Room 202, San Francisco, CA 94102. The forms can also be emailed to HealthServicesHelp@uchastings.edu.
