Goodbye GHI! Hello UC SHIP!
Starting in Fall quarter 2018, UCSB's Student Health Insurance will be switching to "UC SHIP" administered by Anthem. See more details at UCSB SHS and UC SHIP. This is the same insurance plan used at other UC campuses (except Berkeley).

Don't leave campus without your prescriptions! You can request prescription refills online now, for a summer supply usually 3-4 months, and/or you may request refills to be sent by mail order. Further information can be found on ​the website, or by calling 805-893-2116. Ordering prescriptions online can greatly reduce wait times!

(1) You are eligible to use all services at Student Health until Fall classes start 9/22/18
