Purchasing BruinCare
BruinCare can only be purchased in conjunction with your UCLA UC SHIP waiver and does not take the place of coverage associated with the Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) or your qualified private insurance. BruinCare can be purchased by term or for the entire year, depending on your waiver.

For example, if you waive UC SHIP for the entire year, and you wish to purchase BruinCare, you must purchase it for the entire year; if you waive UC SHIP for a term, you will have the option to purchase BruinCare for that term. If you waive UC SHIP and purchase BruinCare for the year but decide during the open enrollment period of the next term that you want to purchase UC SHIP, you will be credited the BruinCare fees to your BruinBill account for the corresponding term and assessed the applicable UC SHIP rate. There are no retroactive waivers and BruinCare is non-refundable for the term purchased unless you lose your private insurance coverage (letter from your insurance company of loss of coverage required) and must purchase UC SHIP (premium not pro-rated).

Applicable charges incurred in The Ashe Center not covered by BruinCare will be billed to your BruinBill account. It is your responsibility to review your BruinBill account each month.

If you have already submitted your waiver application, you can still purchase BruinCare! Just click here to go back to your waiver application and select BruinCare.
