If Your Waiver Application is Denied

Accidents happen. If your waiver is denied based on the answers you submitted on your application, and you believe you made a mistake, you can log back into the online waiver site and correct your answer(s). 

If your waiver was denied, and you do not know why, then it is recommended that you submit an appeal form to the Insurance Services office, along with all of the required documentation.

Please complete and submit an Appeal of Waiver Denial form to the Insurance Services office via any of the below methods:

  • Email: waiver@shcs.ucdavis.edu
  • Fax: 1.530.752.7679
  • Mail: Insurance Services
    Student Health and Counseling Services
    One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616 

Your application will be reviewed within 10 business days of the receipt of your completed appeal form and all required documentation.

If you did not upload a copy of your insurance ID card and a copy of your insurance plans benefits summary, you will be required to provide this information to the Insurance Services office before your appeal can be processed.

If your waiver appeal is approved, you will receive a confirmation email from the Insurance Services office to your UC Davis email address, and the waiver will be posted to your student account within 3 business days.

If your waiver appeal is denied, you will receive an email from the Insurance Services office to your UC Davis email address, detailing the reason(s) why your waiver was denied.
