Mandatory Health Insurance Requirement

All students are required to maintain health insurance while participating in SPIS. This is why we have asked you to complete and return the Health History Form with a proof of insurance. Thank you for sending the document along with other documents as part of SPIS registration. If you have not sent your registration forms, please send them immediately, otherwise you will lose your opportunity to participate in 2017 SPIS.

It turns out that you have to complete one more health insurance form called Health insurance agreement --- Summer Success and Enrichment Programs. Here is the rationale for this additional form. Every UC San Diego student is required to have health insurance during the regular academic year and now they have extended this requirement to the summer session as well. UC San Diego recognizes the fact that some students may not have their own health insurance.They are providing an optional health insurance plan (called Early Start UCSHIP) to help those who do not have their own health insurance. This plan is also available for SPIS students for a fee of $270.02 and provides coverage from August 7th through September 24th. If you do not have your ownhealth insurance, UC San Diego health insurance plan helps you to obtain health insurance and satisfy the mandatory health insurance requirement. Even if you have your own health insurance, you are still required to complete the form stating you have your own health insurance and you decline to utilize the Early Start UCSHIP. The bottom line is that all 2017 SPIS students MUST complete the health insurance agreement form and mail it to the following address so it can be received by Monday, July 10, 2017.

In addition, regardless of your insurance status, all SPIS students will have access to Student Health Services through the SHS Summer Access Program. While some services will be free, there may be a charge for certain services if you decline the Early Start UCSHIP coverage mentioned above. See https://wellness.ucsd.edu/studenthealth/services/Pages/Summer-Access-Programs.aspx for more information about your SHS access.

Deadline for sending the Health insurance agreement --- Summer Success and Enrichment Programs for 2017 SPIS: Monday, July 10, 2017.
