Health Insurance
Health Insurance is mandatory for all UCLA registered students and a condition of enrollment. The UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) is a comprehensive medical insurance program offered to UCLA students. All registered students are automatically enrolled in UC SHIP, but if you have comparable insurance and you do not want to keep UC SHIP as dual coverage, you must submit a request to waive enrollment by the specified deadline. 

  • Students: The Spring 2015 waiver website is CLOSED. Please note that this deadline was extended from the original March 20 deadline. The UC SHIP Waiver site for the 2015-16 academic year will be available beginning July 1, 2015.

  • The statement regarding the new UC SHIP Waiver Criteria can be found here.
  • Details about 2014-2015 UC SHIP benefits are now available.
  • Note: Waiver appeals take up to 30 days to be processed. Fees must still be paid during this time. If the waiver appeal is accepted, then the credit will post on to BruinBill in 3 business days.
  • Need a temporary ID card? Anthem Insurance ID cards (for medical and vision coverage) are available on the UCOP website.
