Health Insurance
Health Insurance is a mandatory condition of enrollment for all UCLA registered students. As such, 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 dates

AttentionAcademic HealthPlans (AHP) is the new plan administrator for UC SHIP that processes all non-registered/voluntary and dependent enrollment requests beginning winter quarter/spring semester.  Please contact AHP at for the following items:
  • To enroll yourself into non-registered/voluntary enrollment
  • To enroll your dependent(s) into UC SHIP.  Depedents are defined as spouse, same sex domestic partner or children.  Additional information on eligibility can be found here
  • To check the status of your enrollment(s) into UCSHIP
Please visit the "Dependent Care" tab for enrollment forms and deadline dates, how to connect with AHP and additional information regarding dependent/non-registered enrollment.

  • We've simplified the waiver process!  Beginning academic year 2019-2020, students seeking to waive UC SHIP coverage will initiate their request and submit all insurance documentation through the fully automated website of our new waiver administrator, Academic Health Plans (AHP).  The waiver website will be available shortly so stay tuned!

For those interested in waiving out of UC SHIP, please review the 2019-2020 Waiver Criteria prior to accessing the online application. 

Please be sure to review the 2019-2020 UC SHIP Calendar for UC SHIP coverage dates as well as appropriate waiver deadline dates.

  • Graduating Students: Please review the 2018-2019 UC SHIP coverage dates to ensure that you make any appointments/transition your healthcare prior to your coverage terminating for the 2018-19 policy year.
  • Our Happy Spring 2019 notification is full of important information regarding UC SHIP and coverage details.  Please be sure to check your emails for this important notice.
