UC Student Health Insurance Plan
is a systemwide plan providing enhanced health benefits to all enrolled
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. For 2015-2016, UC SHIP includes medical, dental, vision, and behavioral health coverage.
