The Student Health Services (SHS) is committed to protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your health information. Specifically, your health information will be used or disclosed only for purposes related to your treatment, payment of your fees and insurance claims and for operations. Unless allowed by law, your health information cannot be disclosed to anyone for any other purpose without your written authorization.

See UC SHIP privacy policy [PDF]. For European economic area members, see the UC SHIP EU GDPR Statement of Privacy Practices [PDF]. Send any comments or concerns about privacy issues to the SHS on your campus.

Here is an example of how we apply our privacy policy. If a student does not pay their portion of SHS fees, or if the SHS service is denied coverage by UC SHIP, the student’s campus account may be billed for the outstanding amount. The billing statement will state only that the charges were incurred at the SHS. No health information is released to the campus billing office. For services outside of the SHS, charges will be sent directly to the insured’s (student’s) address.
