If you are a undergraduate or graduate student with SHIP insurance and are looking for or being referred off campus for mental health services you will need to complete a referral request. Please find  steps to complete the SHIP Mental Health Referral Form below:

Once you have an appointment scheduled, you need to contact the UCI Student Health Center Insurance Office to request a referral (also known as an authorization) to the provider you’ve selected.

You can call them at 949-824-2388 or you send a referral request securely via the patient portal

  • Select “Messages” on the left sidebar > select “New Message” > select “SHC – Insurance Department: Referral Request and Other General Inquires” > select “SHC – Referral Request”. Once the fields are populated click “Submit.” Please allow 1-2 business days for referral processing.
  • You will need to provide them with the name, address, phone number, and fax number (if they have one) of the therapist you are going to see. The Insurance Office will then send a referral to the therapist on your behalf. 

**Please note that while most therapists and group practices require the authorization after an appointment is made, some group practices require the authorization in advance of scheduling an appointment. In this case you can use the name of the group practice.**
