Student Health Services




As a student, you are automatically enrolled in UCR’s Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP) and exempt from purchasing a plan on the Covered CA website or your home state exchange. SHIP meets the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, gives you nationwide coverage, and offers the big advantage of convenient, on-campus care.


With SHIP, you can go to Student Health Services right here on campus to see a doctor, get lab testing, and get X-rays at no out-of-pocket cost. We also have a pharmacy on site so you can get your medicine without having to leave campus. SHIP even includes dental and vision coverage.


See for yourself how convenient and affordable SHIP is. Click here to see the many benefits of SHIP compared with Covered CA. We've got you covered, right here on campus and beyond.

Note: To opt out of SHIP, submit a waiver by March 12, 2014. Late waivers will be accepted through March 31, 2014 with a $50 late fee. For further assistance please contact The Student Health Insurance Office at 951-827-5683.
