STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN
The University of California requires that all registered students have health insurance. To help you meet this requirement, UC Merced automatically enrolls all registered students in the UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP). Fees for UC SHIP covereage are automatically charged to your student account each school term along with your other fees.
- If you want to be enrolled in UC SHIP, you are automatically enrolled - no action required.
- If you have comparable insurance and do not want to be enrolled in UC SHIP, you may submit an Insurance Waiver.
- The services at the Student Health Center are available to all registered students, even if you waive UC SHIP.
You must complete the Waiver Application online at https://my.ucmerced.edu by the stated deadline.
