Prescription Plan

Pharmacy benefits are 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.

    • Students can get partial reimbursement for medication obtained outside of network pharmacies.  Students must mail a Prescription Claim Form to the claims administrator within 90 days of the date of purchase. If it is not reasonably possible to submit within that time frame, an extension of up to 12 months will be allowed. Prescription claim forms and customer service are available by calling 1 (844) 265-1879.
