Important UC SHIP Tax Document Available

January 29, 2021

Dear Student,

Your 1095-B form for tax year 2020 is ready to view electronically through your secure online Academic HealthPlans (AHP) student account.

Students enrolled in the University of California Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) will no longer automatically receive a paper copy of the 1095-B form due to a change in the tax law. Under the new law that became effective beginning with the 2019 tax year, the IRS penalty for not having health coverage was reduced to zero. Therefore, individuals no longer need the information on the 1095-B form to file a federal income tax return.

The 1095-B is a tax form that reports the type of health insurance coverage you have, any dependents covered by your insurance policy and the period of coverage for the filing year.

You can download your 1095-B Form by following the steps below:
