KNOW BEFORE YOU GO. Important information about the UCEAP travel insurance policy and your campus student health insurance plan.
As a UCEAP participant, the UCEAP travel insurance policy provides primary coverage while traveling outside the U.S.
The UCEAP travel insurance policy cannot substitute the minimum essential coverage (MEC) mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that requires most individuals to have qualified health insurance for each month of the year, including while living and studying abroad.
The University of California requires you to have a MEC plan (campus student health insurance or a private plan) while studying abroad through UCEAP. As all registered UC students, you are responsible for either 1) paying the required campus health insurance fee at your UC campus, or 2) obtaining a health insurance waiver at your UC campus.
