confused about SHIP!

<p>So I'm a bit confused about this whole insurance waiving process.. I have blue shield, met life, etc., all kinds of different insurance for different things. How can I waive my SHIP fee?</p>

<p>I will attemp to help you, but be aware, I didn't waive SHIP last year or this year. :)</p>

<p>Fill out the online waiver:
- Go to <a href=""&gt;;/a>
- Click the second category on this page (Logon to Online Services 2006-2007 - Category 2)
- Sign in with BOL or UID
- In the dropdown menu select "SHIP 2006-2007" and click Proceed
- On the next page, in the dropdown menu select "2006-2007" and click Proceed
- Select "Waive blah blah blah"
- Fill out the next pages and you should be good. :D</p>

<p>If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!</p>

<p>Like i've been telling everyone, if you waive SHIP, be sure to waive before Sept 20th, for the entire year and to get all THREE confirmation numbers.</p>

<p>You use your major medical provider. So if blue shield is what you use when you go to the doctor, use that one.</p>

<p>tomorrow's the 20th, so i'm asking this question (a little) late, but these are some questions i hope will be answered!</p>

<p>My plan has a lifetime benefit of at least $100,000 Yes No
Why does it ask for that? And why does it not let you go on if you dn't have a lifetime benefit?</p>

<p>Facility within 25 miles of UCLA where your plan will provide full care:__</p>

<p>do you write the dr.'s name or address..there is only so little space</p>


<p>not sure why they impose those specific requirements.</p>

<p>but about the facility, i just put UCLA Medical Center.</p>

<p>same, i put UCLA Medical Center.</p>

<p>how much is SHIP, anyways? Does it show up in URSA/BAR account? I didn't see a noticable difference after I waivered SHIP.</p>

<p>SHIP is billed on BAR quarterly at the rate of $207.</p>

<p>The stipulations are there to ensure that your insurance is sufficient to pay medical costs should you need them.</p>

<p>if we don't waive it this quarter, can we do so next quarter?</p>

<p>so all of ya'll have lifetime benefits up to 100 Gs?</p>

<p>yeah. </p>

<p>well, apparently.</p>

<p>You can waive it next quarter. I'm pretty sure.</p>

<p>According to the same site, US-based HMO plans satisfy those stipulations.</p>

<p>Yeah I think they're just looking for coverage that's equal to what they offer.</p>

<p>It's pretty standard unless you only have catastrophic or something.</p>
