You’re all about using your smartphone or tablet to get what you need — and fast! So, what if you could use these same devices to get info on your UC SHIP plan?

The new StudentHealth app — from Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) — can help you quickly access UC SHIP information, including:

  • Your member ID card (printed cards are so last year);*
  • Where to find Student Health Services on campus;
  • What’s covered under UC SHIP; and
  • Your Delta Dental PPO Plan benefits.

With StudentHealth, you can also connect with Anthem for medical claims and other plan details, and my OptumRx to get your ID card and manage prescriptions.

Plus, register with StudentHealth and you’ll receive health tips just for you.

Go on, get StudentHealth!

From your smartphone or tablet, download the app from the Apple Store or Google play.

Students can access the information via the web application on their computer or tablet at:
