Cancelling Your Insurance Waiver


Please remember that waivers are in effect for an entire academic year and can
only be canceled before the start of the next Fall quarter. 

The only exception to this is if you have experienced a loss of coverage. If that
happens you can request a waiver cancellation.



To request a cancellation of your waiver due to loss of other insurance coverage
you must submit an email stating that you would like to cancel your waiver and
enroll into UC SHIP. Please include your name, perm #, AND the loss-of-coverage documentation of from your previous insurance company.


If you cancel your waiver and enroll in UC SHIP within 31 days of the qualifying life event (e.g. loss of coverage), your effective date of coverage will be the day following the date of the loss-of-coverage (if that date is within the current coverage period). Otherwise, coverage will begin the first day of the quarter for which you are applying for insurance enrollment. 

If you cancel your waiver and enroll in UC SHIP after 31 days of the qualifying life event (e.g. loss of coverage), your effective date of coverage will be the day following the date you notified us regarding your loss-of-coverage.

For additional information, feel free to send us an email.
