What is covered with the UC SHIP?

Health Insurance is mandatory for all UCLA registered students and a condition of enrollment. The UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) is a health care program for UCLA students. UC SHIP is a comprehensive major medical insurance plan, providing medical, prescription, counseling, vision and dental services.

Students with UC SHIP are expected to seek all non-emergency care at the Ashe Center and they can be referred as needed to other network providers. An Ashe referral is required for all non-emergent treatment. For all counseling and psychological services, students must start their care at CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services). A referral must be administered by a CAPS provider for additional behavioral health treatment and services outside of CAPS. For a breakdown of the deductibles, patient coinsurance and copayment rates, please review our comprehensive grid.

Current Policy Year 2015-2016

Coverage starts September 19th for quarter students and terminates September 24th, 2017. If you are enrolled in a specialized program, please view our calendar for additional dates.
