Current UCSD Residents are welcome to sign up electronically at our JotForm page--takes fewer than 2 minutes!


IMPORTANT: If you are NO longer in a one of SDHSA's represented employment titles, the UC requires you to affirmatively "Opt-Out" of Membership before the University will discontinue deducting SDHSA dues. 

When a UCSD Resident transitions to a position at UCSD which is NOT represented by the SDHSA, (for example, when a resident finishes their residency but then continues employment with the University as an attending), the University requires the employee to affirmatively file an election to "Opt-Out" before they will cease deducting SDHSA dues from your paycheck. Note: this is a University Policy (NOT that of the SDHSA). SDHSA has sought to have the University to automatically cease collection of dues upon the change to a unrepresented employment title but the University has refused. If you are anticipating changing employment with the UC, please review the Opt-Out procedure found under the Membership section of this site. 

Please email with questions or concerns.
