All registered UC Berkeley undergrad and grad students are automatically enrolled in the Berkeley Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) as a way to meet the University of California’s health insurance mandate as set by the UC Regents.
If you have comparable health insurance that meets the SHIP waiver criteria and do not wish to have dual coverage, you can submit an online waiver application to waive your enrollment in SHIP. The waiver must be filled out annually. The deadline to waive without a late fee is July 17, 2023. No waivers will be accepted after August 15, 2023.
