Health Care Benefits

 
  • GAIP (Graduate Appointee Insurance Program) – your health care insurance under the contract.
  • ISHIP (International Student Health Insurance Program) – International students, when they are not 50% FTE, can have ISHIP to fulfill the insurance requirement.
  • List of trans affirming health providers – In Fall 2015, we distributed a survey to all ASEs to gather information on the health care needs of trans members. We are in ongoing efforts to improve GAIP coverage of trans-related health services, including getting clarification on which services are covered, calling for improved trans competency of Lifewise representatives, etc. This is an ongoing list of trans-affirming health providers in the Seattle area who accept GAIP.
  • List of lactation stations at UW – The Family Friendly & Gender Equity workgroup is actively working to enforce and improve the availability of lactation stations on campus.  This is a list of lactation stations on all 3 UW campuses.
