What You Need to Know about Your Health Insurance

Health Insurance is mandatory for all UCSB registered students and a condition of enrollment. The Gaucho Health Insurance Plan (GHI) is a comprehensive medical insurance program offered to UCSB students. All registered students are automatically enrolled in GHI, but if you have comparable insurance and you do not want to keep GHI as dual coverage, you must submit a request to waive enrollment by the specified deadline.

Need an ID card?

After the first day of the quarter you may print your insurance ID card (for medical, dental and vision coverage). This is available on the Aetna Website. For instructions, click here.
