UC SHIP has a lot to offer you.  Take a look at the UC SHIP Student BrochureSummary of Benefits and Coverage, and Fees and Eligibility.

Waiving UC SHIP

All registered students are automatically enrolled into the UC SHIP insurance plan. Please keep in mind that waiving is an annual process and must be completed every academic year to avoid being automatically assessed and enrolled into UC SHIP.  If you are currently covered under a private health plan and do not wish to be dually covered with UC SHIP, you may submit an online application to waive out of the student health insurance plan.  

Info IconSemester students (Med/Law) have until January 17, 2020 to complete a spring semester waiver. If you are aging out of your private health insurance plan (i.e. turning 26) or are interested in re-enrolling into UCSHIP for the spring semester, please send an email to our office at ucshipwaivers@ashe.ucla.edu with your waiver cancellation request.  Please review the UC SHIP waiver calendar for appropriate dates of coverage.
Info Icon Quarter programs (undergraduate/graduate students) interested in waiving out of UC SHIP for the winter/spring quarters, please be sure to submit your waiver request no later than January 17, 2020.  If you are interested in cancelling your waiver and re-enrolling into UCSHIP, please submit your request to cancel your waiver to ucshipwaivers@ashe.ucla.eduBe sure to include your name and student ID number in your email.

Important Things to Note:

  • Those with third party access are unable to log onto the UC SHIP waiver application with their sign-on credentials.  Only registered UCLA students will have access to the site.  
  • UC SHIP waivers processed will be subject to a 100% audit.  When accessing the application, students will be asked to upload their insurance information (i.e. their insurance ID card/policy booklet) for review.
  • When applications are submitted, a tentaive approved or denied result will be shown.  Denied applications will have the opportunity to log back onto the system to make appropriate edits to the original application.
  • Once an application is tentatively approved, the insurance information will be reviewed by AHP for accuracy.  After a complete audit has been performed, AHP will update the waiver status from tentative approved to final approved and will connect with UCLA Ashe Center to initiate removing the premium fee from the BruinBill,
  • Due to the addition of the real time audit, we have moved up the waiver deadline dates to account for any pending statuses on student accounts prior to the fee payment deadline date (please check your respective academic calendars for these dates).
  • If a waiver is denied, an appeal may be returned to the Ashe Insurance Office for waiver reconsideration by submitting proof of current insurance coverage from your health insurance plan.
