Traveler’s Insurance

Enrollees in the University of California Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) are covered for approved medical expenses incurred while abroad through the Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core Program. The University of California also offers ACE travel insurance for travelers on official University business.

If you are officially withdrawing from school to travel, your health insurance will terminate unless you opt into the Continuation Plan or the Voluntary UC SHIP. Please visit End of Coverage: Insurance Options to learn more about insurance options while traveling abroad.
