- Anthem Blue Cross – for medical claims and other plan benefits
- OptumRx – to manage your prescriptions
- Delta Dental – for dental coverage and claim information
- And much more!

Delta Dental app
For dental care, you will need your Delta Dental ID card. This is not available on the Student Health app. The Student Health mobile app includes a link to Delta Dental of California's mobile website: www.deltadentalins.com. The mobile site will provide claim information, insurance card information and the ability to search for a provider once you are registered on the site.
- You will be asked to login or create an account.
- When you are asked for your member ID, use the numeric portion of your Anthem ID number (without the XDP prefix) of your UCSD student ID#.
- Your Delta Dental ID card should be visible from the "Home" screen.
- If you want to print your Delta Dental ID card, you can email it to yourself by pressing "Email ID Card" on the "Home" screen.
Please note: Delta Dental Plans Association has a mobile app, however, this is
NOT intended for UCSHIP/Delta Dental of CA.
- It is important to register so you can also receive notifications about your UC SHIP benefits. It is your responsibility to understand your benefits prior to seeking care. Refer to
ucop.edu/ucship for more details regarding your UC SHIP benefits. You may call or email our office with questions.
