What is UC SHIP?

Coverage by a qualified health insurance plan is a mandatory condition of enrollment and admission. UC SHIP is a low-cost, comprehensive health plan for UCLA registered students and is automatically assessed as part of your tuition fees.

Coverage is provided by these contracted insurance carriers:

  • Anthem Blue Cross Medical (an Ashe referral is necessary)
  • Anthem Blue View Vision Insight
  • Delta Dental (now included for undergraduates)

All non-emergency medical services must be initiated at The Ashe Center. Students are automatically assigned a primary care provider (PCP). You must obtain a written referral authorization from your PCP prior to making outside appointments. The plan does not pay for outside unauthorized services. Referrals are not required for vision and dental care, and visits to an emergency room or urgent care center.
