You are required to have health insurance. UC
Davis provides a major medical health insurance plan to you. The Student Health
Insurance Plan (SHIP) covers medical services not available at Student Health
and Wellness Center
and authorized by a SHWC physician.
SHIP coverage begins on September 12. The 2011-2012 premium was $722 per quarter
or $2,166 per year. The premium for 2012-2013 has not yet been
set. You may waive SHIP if you have comparable health insurance. Otherwise, this is automatically added to your
student account. Note: Most international coverage is not
equivalent to SHIP.
Student Health and Wellness Center, an on-campus clinical
facility, is available to you and provides services at
discounted rates. These services include preventative, primary
and specialty care as well as urgent, same-day and scheduled
appointments. Complete information, including information on
requesting a waiver, is on their website:
