Prescription Plan

For the 2016-17 academic year your prescription plan and pharmacy coverage will be managed by Optum Rx on behalf of the UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP). There is no annual pharmacy benefit limit. Enrollees may purchase prescribed medications from any pharmacy, but will receive the greatest benefit from an in-network pharmacy.

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