Davis SHIP Waiver
All registered UC Davis Students* are automatically enrolled in the UC Davis Student Health Insurance Plan (Davis SHIP) in order to meet the UC Regents mandate that all UC students have health insurance coverage as a non-academic condition of enrollment. However, if you are already covered by a health insurance plan, and do not wish to be enrolled in Davis SHIP, you can waive enrollment by submitting a waiver application prior to the start of each new academic year. Waiver applications need to be submitted each academic year so that we have the most up to date information regarding your insurance coverage.
*Students enrolled in the Working Professional MBA Program are not eligible for Davis SHIP.
