Health Insurance Requirement

Unless you are in the Working Professional MBA Program you are required to have health insurance. To help you meet the Health Insurance Requirement, UC Davis automatically enrolls all registered students in the UC Davis Student Health Insurance Plan (Davis SHIP) (If you are a medical student your health insurance is provided through the School of Medicine).

  • If you want to be enrolled in Davis SHIP, you are automatically enrolled — no action is required.
  • If you have comparable insurance and do not want to be enrolled in UC SHIP, you must apply for a Davis SHIP waiver by the date specified for your school. The services at Student Health and Counseling Services are available to all students, even if you waive Davis SHIP.

Fees for Davis SHIP coverage are charged to your student account each term along with your registration fees. Davis SHIP benefits, costs, and dates of coverage are updated every June for the coming year.
