Gaucho Health Insurance (GHI)

Other Pages In Quarterly Fees and Expenses

The UC Regents require all registered students to be covered by major medical health insurance while attending school. Students are automatically enrolled in GHI unless they complete a waiver form and provide proof of comparable coverage. The waiver form must be submitted each year by the specified deadline. Unless a waiver is granted, students are charged a health insurance fee as part of their registration.

GHI provides a complete health care package when combined with the services available through Student Health located on-campus. In addition, GHI is portable, meaning that students receive excellent coverage whether they are on campus, at home, or traveling.

For further information, call Student Health at (805) 893-2592 to speak with an insurance advisor. Students who completely withdraw, have their classes canceled after the beginning of a quarter, or are lapsed for non-payment and wish to seek a refund of GHI fees should contact Student Health.
