What options do I have if my waiver is denied?

Waivers can be denied for several reasons:

  • The waiver form was not completed accurately, or is incomplete.
  • Your commercial or government-sponsored insurance does not meet the required minimum health insurance benefit levels established by UCLA.
  • Your waiver request was submitted after the deadline.

If your waiver application is denied, please follow the instructions provided on the waiver application. The appeal form is available under INSURANCE at with specific requests for documentation. You have within 14 business days from your date of denial to submit your appeal to the Student Health Insurance Office.


The decision to deny waivers submitted after the deadline or due to the inadequate benefit level of your health insurance plan is final and follows University Policy, and you will be automatically enrolled in UC SHIP.
