What You Need to Know about Your Health Insurance
Health Insurance is mandatory for all UCSB registered students and a condition of enrollment. The UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) 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 UC SHIP is included in your total cost of attendance. All registered students are automatically enrolled in UC SHIP, but if you have comparable insurance and you do not want to keep UC SHIP as dual coverage, you must submit a request to waive enrollment by the specified deadline.
*NOTE* - UC SHIP/Anthem will be secondary if you have other medical insurance coverage (except Tricare and Medi-Cal).
Depending on your financial need, you may be eligible to have your UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) premium fully or partially covered by an UC Student Health Insurance grant. Please note that your Financial Aid Award will change if you waive out of UC SHIP. This grant helps cover the cost of UC Health Insurance for the academic year and the amount of this grant is dependent upon your financial need. Students who opt out of UC Health Insurance will not be eligible to receive the grant. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will not consider any appeals from students who waive out.
If you do waive out of UC Health Insurance, your total financial aid will still include the full cost of the Gaucho Access Plan (GAP) in order to ensure students have adequate funding to sign up for that program.

- Provide results of a prior sickle cell test (all children are screened at birth as part of a newborn screening in most of the United States).
- Take a blood test at Student Health and wait for the results BEFORE participation.
- Take a blood test at an outside location and bring results to report date.
As of today, all fifty states have newborn screening programs that identify sickle cell trait status at birth; however, not all states adopted screening in the same year. This information needs to be requested directly from the state of birth, pediatricians’ offices do not necessarily have access to this information. In the State of California, results may be available from the State at: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CFH/DGDS/Pages/nbs/athletestraitresults.aspx
Please indicate that results should be sent to UCSB or email@example.com
If you were NOT born in California, find the newborn screening program in the state where you were born using: http://genes-r-us.uthscsa.edu/resources/consumer/statemap.htm
If you were born outside the United States, you will need to be screened upon arrival on campus.
If you are transferring from another NCAA institution you will likely have already been tested; please request test results from your prior institution and bring a copy to your physical date.
5. Request and gather copies of ALL prior immunization records: the Student Health Center requires that all immunizations are up to date, including tetanus and pertussis. Please bring a copy of your immunizations records showing all records are up to date. For further information, go to http://studenthealth.sa.ucsb.edu/services/medical-services/immunization-information/university-immunization-requirements.
If you are transferring from another NCAA institution you may have already had immunizations done; please request these records from your prior institution and bring a copy to your physical date.
6. If you have been formally diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, gather all pertinent paperwork regarding the diagnosis: additional paperwork will be provided for your treating physician/psychologist to fill out. This process is required by the NCAA as ADD/ADHD medications are considered banned substances. Also, if you plan to apply for services through the Disabled Student Program (DSP) on campus, ADD/ADHD testing must have been completed prior to application but within a year of you starting UCSB. In this instance, if your tests were completed more than a year prior to your application, your tests will need to be done again. If you plan not to utilize these services, retesting is not required.
7. If you have recently recovered from a serious injury or illness that caused you to miss sport time in the last 24 months, gather all clearance paperwork from your treating physician: this helps us to keep current records and expedite your clearance status through our sports medicine doctors.
Any documentation can be faxed to the athletic training room (ATR) prior to your physical date at (805) 893-5420. If you are faxing forms, please make sure to identify your sport and name clearly.
