Student Health Insurance
The University requires all students to have major medical insurance, and SHS offers UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) to meet that requirement. UC SHIP benefits include coverage for many gender affirming procedures. See: UC SHIP for more information about coverage.

Your appointments with clinicians, counselors, and other SHS staff are confidential. By law, your parents, friends, professors, and other school officials do not have access to your Student Health records.
Like medical records, these are protected by law. In addition, counseling records are kept separately from medical records.
The only way that someone may know about your appointment is if you tell them, you give us written permission to release information, or we are required by law.
