The Student Insurance Advocate Program is a service available at no charge for all UC Davis Students.

  • How much should a good plan cost?
  • Is Davis SHIP the best health insurance plan for me?
  • Can I stay on my parent’s insurance plan?
  • What about insurance plans available through Covered California...
    How do they compare?
  • How do I enroll in a new insurance plan?
  • I’m graduating soon. Can you help me find a new insurance plan?
  • Can I wait until later to decide...
    What are the deadlines?
