Blue Care Network

Blue Care Network (BCN) is a health plan option available to faculty, staff and retirees. BCN is a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), meaning that enrollees will select and work closely with a primary care physician to manage care. MSU members can seek services from both in-network and out-of-network (non-contracted) providers. Deductibles, co-insurance and prior-authorization requirements apply in some circumstances. Members have access to BCN’s statewide network through or by calling 1-800-662-6667.

The in-network deductible is $100 per individual and $200 for the family. After meeting the deductible, a 20% co-insurance may apply, up to a maximum of $3,000 individually or $6,000 for the family, per calendar year. 

The out-of-network deductible is $500 per individual and $1,000 for the family for the entire plan year. The deductible is based on a calendar year. A majority of the services are subject to a 20% co-insurance after meeting the deductible, up to a maximum of $3,000 individually or $6,000 for the family, per calendar year.
