Student Health Services (SHS) does not provide health insurance. Students are strongly encouraged to have an insurance policy that covers services beyond basic care.
SHS participates in the Family PACT program. If you qualify, Family PACT will cover most costs associated with Pap smears, STI testing and many birth control methods for both men and women.
You can now purchase low cost individual health insurance as mandated by the Affordable Care Act. The marketplace for California is called "Covered California." Visit their web site for more information on available plans, requirements and how to sign up:
