Berkeley has recently learned of a $57 million dollar deficit in the UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP). We want to gather feedback on several options available to students and the campus to address the deficit, including raising premiums for students, reducing health benefits, or pulling Berkeley out of the systemwide insurance plan. Not only will this impact student health but it will also impact financial aid. Additionally, learn about how Health Reform (or the Affordable Care Act) will impact SHIP and your benefits.
We are hosting three forums to inform students on what has been happening with UC SHIP and to find out your preferences on premiums, benefits, and more. As your Berkeley UC SHIP rep it is critical to have your feedback as we make decisions about the future of health and health insurance on our campus. These forums are open to all students, staff, and faculty.
