All students are required to carry health insurance. All GSEP students registered in the Malibu Clinical Psychology program are required to furnish verification of health insurance with U.S. based coverage comparable to the University's policy or enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). These students must annually submit the electronic waiver as proof of insurance upon entrance and each fall semester thereafter by the specified deadline date, otherwise they will automatically be enrolled in SHIP. To review mandates and deadlines please go to community.pepperdine.edu/healthcenter/insurance. All international students are required to purchase insurance with U.S. coverage. The University requires health care coverage for the purpose of limiting undue financial and academic stress related to illnesses during the academic year. A health policy will assist in meeting not only common illnesses treated at the Student Health Center or at a private physician's office, but also with the financial burden of illness and accidents involving more extensive care.
The University Insurance Committee has contracted with an insurance broker, Wells Fargo Insurance Services (WF). This group researched insurance options and presented The Anthem Blue Cross Health and Life Insurance Co. as the optimal coverage for our student body. The University insurance policy through Anthem meets all Health Care Reform requirements and has been contracted to include the lowest premium for your benefit; however, you may purchase any policy that has comparable coverage to the University policy. Wells Fargo facilitates our group policy with Anthem and provides customer service to our students for all insurance matters. A nominal administrative fee is added to the premium to cover University insurance-related services.
If you have any questions regarding SHIP, please call the University's insurance broker, Wells Fargo Insurance Services, at (800) 853-5899. You may also access student insurance information online by clicking the link Wells Fargo Insurance Services.
