As a registered student at Cal, you have an outstanding health plan available. The Student Health Insurance Plan is a comprehensive major medical insurance plan, providing medical, counseling, prescription, vision and dental services. Learn about how to use SHIP here (including claims and billing). Remember, all students can use the Tang Center, whether you have SHIP or not.

SHIP Waiver Appeal Status Update 9/19/14
Some families are still waiting for their SHIP waiver appeal decision. The new waiver criteria and auto-decision waiver application created confusion resulting in a surge of waiver appeals this fall. As a result, the SHIP office has been managing unprecedented numbers of waiver appeals and inquiries. Please accept our sincere apologies. We anticipate it may be a few more weeks until all cases have been cleared. Due to the unusual delay in reviewing insurance waiver appeals, students that have *only* SHIP premiums unpaid and who have a waiver appeal still pending review will not be charged a late fee on their CARS accounts - see FAQs. Students who have non-SHIP related costs still pending payment on their CARS accounts will be assessed the standard late fees. UHS will be working with UCOP, management, our SHIP student subcommittee and student government leaders to improve the process for next year. Read more about the waiver criteria changes made 8/13/14 here.
