Take care of yourself, UC Irvine!

Alert! UC SHIP plan benefits have been revised to meet Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) requirements. Read the Notice to Students for a list of plan changes, effective retro-active to August 1, 2015.

  • 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. Important tip for UCI students! If you are unable to register on the first try, reenter what you typed into the "first name" field. Use these options: First name [space] middle name (ex. Joseph Jayden); first name [space] middle initial (ex. Joseph J); first name [space] middle initial with a period (ex. Joseph J.).
  • Get care from student health specialists at your campus’ Student Health Center with virtually no cost to you because you are covered by UC SHIP.
  • Use your coverage while you travel in the United States and worldwide by obtaining a referral from SHC when you need non-emergency care. (Referrals are not required for emergency room services or Urgent Care Clinic visits.)
  • Pay lower student fees for specialty care at the UC Family of university medical centers, including our UC Irvine Medical Center and UC Irvine Health affiliated facilities and professional providers.
