ELIGIBILITY:In order to qualify for mental health reimbursement funds, students must meet all of the following criteria:1) Must be a current UCB enrolled student*2) Must be low-income as defined by financial aid guidelines3) Must not be eligible for federal financial aid (pell grant, federal loans, etc.)4) Must use any available health care coverage first, then request refund for outstanding co-pay/fees.
*Note: Current enrollment is required to process refund request, but you are still eligible for refunds for mental health services you accessed during a Leave of Absence (LOA), and/or Summer & Winter breaks. When this is the case, you must request a refund during the first term that you're re-enrolled at UCB. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate requests for refunds prior to first semester at UCB or post-graduation.
APPLICATION:Please fill out all required information listed below. In addition, please upload supporting documentation which should have been provided by the mental health provider from which you received services. This could be a receipt showing how much money you paid out-of-pocket, a billing statement, or an invoice that lists the date (s) of service and amount you were responsible to pay that was not covered by insurance. If you've lost these records, you can request a duplicate invoice from the therapist or other mental health provider. Once request is approved, you will receive an email from USP staff informing you that a refund will being sent through your CalCentral account and should be available within the following 7-10 business days. Refunds are processed once a term.
