SHIP Referrals

Effective March 16, no referrals needed to access care

Given the unique situation that continues to evolve around the coronavirus, effective March 16, 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

The student should visit an in-network provider in order to receive the maximum benefits on the plan. To find an in-network provider, the student can call the customer service number on the back of their health insurance card or use the Wellfleet Student find a doctor tool.

Off-Campus Mental Health Providers

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