All students at UC are required to have health insurance and are automatically enrolled in theUC campus plan. The cost of insurance is applied to your student billing account. Insurance coverage and costs vary by campus.
To be covered under a plan other than the UC campus plan, you must request a waiver (exemption) from the requirement within the announced deadlines. Review your host UC campus requirements to ensure that your insurance from home meets all waiver criteria. A campus-specific waiver request along with proof of enrollment in the alternative insurance plan must be submitted for review to the campus by the posted deadline.
Waiver is not automatic: Do not assume that a waiver will be approved. Purchase of the UC insurance plan is a UC requirement. Budget for this expense.
See the campus specific instructions for your host UC for more information.
