How to Use UC SHIP

The UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) for Graduate, Professional and Undergraduate students is part of the UC system-wide health insurance program. 

The plan provides comprehensive medical, pharmacy, dental and vision coverage for registered students and their dependents, and medical and dental coverage for undergraduate students and their dependents. 

While coverage for registered students is automatic, the dependent plans are voluntary. The coverage is also available on a voluntary basis for students on an approved Leave of Absence or Filing Fee status (graduate students only), as well as recent graduates (undergraduate and graduate students).

Coverage for medical, hospital, and vision is provided through Anthem Blue Cross.
Coverage for pharmacy is provided by OptumRx. Coverage for dental is provided through Delta Dental.
