How long is my BruinCare coverage good for, e.g. does BruinCare cover me during the summer?
Purchasing BruinCare is linked to waiving UC SHIP. If you waive UC SHIP for the entire year, you will have the option to purchase BruinCare for the entire year. If you waive UC SHIP for a term, you will have the option to purchase BruinCare for that term. There is NO BruinCare for the summer. There are no retroactive waivers and BruinCare is non-refundable for the term e.g., quarter/semester purchased unless you lose your private insurance coverage (letter of loss of coverage required) and must purchase UC SHIP (rate not pro-rated). A spring term purchase of BruinCare does not then extend into the summer, and coverage ends with the last official day of the spring term exams.
