Take care of yourself, UC Davis!


  • UC SHIP plan benefits meet Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) requirements of the Affordable Care Act. Take a close look at all that UC SHIP has to offer you in the 2016–17 UC SHIP student brochure. Download the new StudentHealth app to obtain your Anthem Blue Cross Medical/Vision ID Card and have easy access to medical, pharmacy and dental information on the go.
  • Get care from student health specialists at your campus' Student Health and Counseling Services with no out of pocket cost to you* because you are covered by UC SHIP.
    * Fees will apply for Pharmacy and Optometry services

  • Use your coverage while you travel in the United States and worldwide by obtaining a referral from SHCS when you need non-emergency care. (Referrals are not required for emergency room services or Urgent Care Clinic visits. No referral is required if you live or travel 20 or more miles from campus, or to visit a pediatrician, obstetrician for pre-natal and maternity care, or a gynecologist if one is not available at Student Health and Counseling Services.)
  • Obtain specialty care at the UC Family of university medical centers, affiliated facilities and professional providers, including our UC Medical Centers.
