SHIP Referrals

No referrals needed to access medical and mental health care

Given the unique situation that continues to evolve around the coronavirus, effective March 16, 2020 students with SHIP (Student Health Insurance Plan) are no longer required to seek a referral from University Health Services before accessing care. The referral exception will remain in place until further notice.

Choosing an In-Network Health Provider

Students should visit an in-network provider in order to receive the maximum benefits on the plan. To find an in-network provider, students can call Wellfleet member services at (833) 302-9785, download the Berkeley SHIP mobile app or use the Wellfleet Student find a doctor tool.

Off-Campus Mental Health Providers

As of March 16, 2020 no referrals are needed to access off-campus mental health providers. To locate off-campus mental health providers, see our CAPS Referral Database.
