Students with dependents watch sinking SHIP
The Daily Californian

UC Berkeley’s plan to terminate health insurance for dependents of students will cut off a valuable option for a population that is already marginalized on our campus and faces a greater degree of responsibility than most.

Beginning in the fall, UC Berkeley’s Student Health Insurance Plan will no longer cover dependents, forcing some 200 spouses, partners and children of students on SHIP to find alternate health-care coverage outside the campus provider.
