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 which includes vision and dental coverage, and access to most Student Health services with no additional charges. The premium for GHI is included in your total cost of attendance. 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.
Referrals are required for all appointments outside of SHS within 50 miles of UCSB -
please make an appointment at Student Health if you need one.
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.
