How to Use UC SHIP

UC SHIP Referral Requirement

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

To be covered by UC SHIP, you need a referral from the Student Health Service (SHS) to get medical care anywhere else if you are within a 50 mile radius of campus - except for emergency room care, urgent care clinics, pediatric care, obstetrics services, gynecological care, Lyra Health, and LiveHealth Online virtual visits. Non-emergency or non-urgent medical care within 50 miles of UCSB, you must seek treatment with a Student Health provider (during regular hours of operation). 
Student Health providers will issue you a referral when additional care or a specialist is needed.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Without a referral from Student Health, some care will not be covered by UC SHIP. When necessary, be sure to get a referral so you are not stuck with an unexpected bill to pay.

How do I get a Referral 

For Students seeking care inside of the 50-mile radius from UCSB: 

If we have not seen you yet at Student Health for which you need a referral you can request a referral through the MyHealth Portal. Go to "Message" then to "New Message" scroll down until you see the option to "Request a Referral" Complete the form and someone will reach out to you.

If you are currently receiving care from a SH provider for the existing condition, needing a referral, you can request a referral via secure message through the MyHealth Portal

Dependents under a Student’s Plan:  must seek care from off-campus providers – no referral required.  

Dual Insurance Coverage: If you have another private Insurance plan, your private insurance will become your Primary Insurance plan when off campus. A referral will be necessary to submit any claims your private insurance may not cover.
