Medical Plan Benefits

Enrollees must use Student Health & Counseling Services (SHCS) for their primary care and have authorization from SHCS for any specialty care. Care received at SHCS is free of charge and specialty care is covered by the University of California Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) as covered by Anthem Blue Cross PPO. Please note UCSF Medical Center provides additional discounts for students.

You can find details and important information about your plan as well as contact information and network providers on the UC SHIP website.

UC SHIP also has an app available! Click here for more information on the apps and how to download.

Note: Dependent benefits are the same as student benefits. If you are a dependent covered under the UC SHIP, review your benefits on the Dependent Benefits page.
