*If you received a waiver approval in the Fall, that approval is valid for the entire 2023-2024 academic year.
If you're already covered by a health insurance plan and do not wish to be enrolled in UC SHIP for the Spring, you can waive enrollment by submitting an online waiver application during the Spring waiver period.
- Spring Waiver application period opens November 12, 2023
- Spring Waiver application period closes January 8, 2024
IMPORTANT: UC SHIP FEES ARE CHARGED TO YOUR STUDENT ACCOUNT EACH SEMESTER ALONG WITH YOUR REGISTRATION FEES. YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY THESE FEES AND WILL BE COVERED BY UC SHIP UNLESS YOU HAVE AN APPROVED WAIVER APPLICATION ON FILES WITH INSURANCE SERVICES AT THE STUDENT HEALTH CENTER.
If I waive UC SHIP, can I still use Student Health Services on my campus?
Yes, all registered UC students can receive care at the campus Student Health Services (SHS), regardless of what type of insurance they have. Please note, that SHS does not submit claims to plans other than UC SHIP.
If you have any questions, please contact the insurance office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
