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: Please note that the Spring 2015 waiver website is OPEN. If you have forgotten to waive, want to cancel your Spring waiver, or if you have successfully waived and want to purchase BruinCare, the UC SHIP waiver website will be available from 3/1-3/31 for quarter students only. Please note that this deadline has been extended from the original March 20 deadline.

  • 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.
  • NOTE: Anthem Blue Cross ID cards were mistakenly sent to some Spring and Summer UCLA graduates. If you received an ID card by error and are no longer covered by UC SHIP insurance, please destroy it. We are sorry for any inconvenience or confusion this matter may have caused you.
