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

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.

Important Things to Note:

Semester students (Med/Law) are eligible to apply for a waiver to opt-out of UC SHIP for the 2020-2021 academic year. Please review the UC SHIP waiver calendar for appropriate waiver deadline dates.

Quarter programs (undergraduate/graduate students) interested in waiving out of UC SHIP for the 2020-2021 academic year will have access to the waiver application beginning March 1 – March 20, 2021 . Please be sure to review the waiver criteria to ensure that you meet the requirements necessary to waive out of UC SHIP.


  • 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.
