Should I waive SHIP?
Here are some important things to know about health insurance at UC Berkeley:
- All eligible UC Berkeley students are required to have medical insurance that meets the University's requirements.
- All students are automatically enrolled in SHIP to meet that requirement -- see the SHIP benefits.
- If you have comparable insurance and don't want to keep SHIP as dual coverage, you may submit a waiver application.
- All students can use University Health Services (UHS), whether they have SHIP or not.
