Dependent Benefits

Eligible dependents of fully enrolled/registered UCSF students and researchers may elect to pay and enroll in the Voluntary UC SHIP. Please see Enrollment & Eligiblity for details and an application. 

Adult enrolleed dependents 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 Graduate Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) as covered by Anthem Blue Cross PPO.

On the UC SHIP website, you can find details and important information about your plan as well as contact information and network providers.
