MSU student health insurance plan

MSU offers health coverage for students and their eligible dependents through Blue Care Network (BCN). If you are a graduate assistant, medical student or international student, you are enrolled automatically in the health plan. If you are a student that does not fall into one of these groups, you are eligible to voluntarily enroll in the health plan. Through this plan, you have access to quality health care through hospitals, physicians and affiliated health care professionals in the BCN provider network. Locate a provider through the BCN website.
