SHIP (Student Health Insurance Plan) is a comprehensive health insurance plan that is specifically designed to safeguard the health of UW–Madison students. The plan is not motivated by profit. By administering the plan locally at UHS, we keep costs as low as possible and ensure that the plan is tailored to the needs of our members. SHIP premiums are designated to cover the cost of claims or to improve benefits.

The SHIP website has complete information on SHIP enrollment (including enrollment dates and deadlines) and coverages for domestic students, for international students, and for international scholars.

Registered students can enroll online, in the SHIP office, by telephone, or by mail. Parents can enroll their registered student in the SHIP office, by telephone, or by mail.


**All international students, scholars and visa dependents residing in the United States are required to have UW–Madison approved health insurance coverage. They must enroll in SHIP or file a qualifying waiver by the compliance deadline.
