Well Fargo Insurance Services Statement

May 31, 2016

Wells Fargo Insurance is the waiver administrator for UC SHIP.  In addition, we have been contracted by the UC Office of the President/UCSC to conduct waiver audits for UCSC.  As part of our audit process, we may require a student to complete the Authorization to Release Protected Health Information form in order to complete the audit.  For verification purposes, the form contains a section requesting an “Account ID or Social Security Number.”  You are required to provide the Account ID (Subscriber ID or Health Plan Member ID#) associated with your existing health insurance plan.  You are not required to provide your Social Security Number(SSN)unless it is also your Account ID (i.e., military health plans).  Please do not ignore this request as failure to respond will result in automatic failure of the audit and you may be charged and enrolled into UC SHIP.



We know that your privacy is important to you and we strive to protect the confidentiality of your personal information. We do not disclose any personal information about our plan participants, except as permitted or required by law (e.g., information you provide to us may be shared with your school to process your insurance transaction). To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings. You may obtain a detailed copy of our privacy policy through your school or by calling us at (800) 853-5899 or by visiting us at studentinsurance.wellsfargo.com.
