Cancelling Your Insurance Waiver


Please remember that waivers are in effect for an entire academic year.
If needed, you may request to cancel your waiver before the start of
the next quarter. 

The only exception to this is if you have experienced a loss of coverage.
If that happens you can request an immediate waiver cancellation,
and we can start your UCSHIP coverage in the middle of a quarter.

 


To request a cancellation of your waiver you must submit an email stating that you would like to cancel your waiver and enroll into UC SHIP for the following quarter. This must be submitted before the start of the quarter. 


If the quarter has already begun and you request to cancel your waiver due to loss of other insurance coverage, you must email the loss-of-coverage documentation letter from your previous insurance company. Please bear in mind that you will be charged for the entire quarterly insurance premium (we have no prorated rates). 

If you cancel your waiver and enroll in UCSHIP 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).

If it has been more than 31 days after the qualifying life event (e.g. loss of coverage), your effective date of UCSHIP 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.
