FAQ

How do I navigate through enrollment?

Enrollment uses what we call road map technology and walks employees through step by step. You may navigate through enrollment by clicking the Next and Previous buttons at the top of the screen or clicking directly on the screen number desired.

My Name is listed incorrectly. How do I update this information?

If your name is inaccurate, contact MSU Human Resources at 517-353-4434 or solutionscenter@hr.msu.edu.

My Address is listed incorrectly. How do I update this information?

If your address is inaccurate, contact MSU Human Resources at 517-353-4434 or solutionscenter@hr.msu.edu or update via your Personal Profile upon completion of enrollment.

Why do I not see Health Savings Plan (HSA) as an option for enrollment?

The Health Savings Account (HSA) will only appear for those eligible for the plan.

What is a Health Savings Plan (HSA)?

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an account created for individuals covered under high-deductible health plans (such as MSU’s CDHP Plan) to save for medical expenses. Contributions are made into the account by the individual and/or the individual's employer and are limited to a maximum amount each year. The contributions are invested over time and can be used to pay for qualified medical expenses, which include most medical care such as dental, vision and over-the-counter drugs. More information regarding MSU’s health savings plan can be found at https://hr.msu.edu/benefits/cdhp_hsa/.

What does Inactive Plans mean?

Inactive plans are plans that an employee is eligible for but are not enrolled in.

Why are my plan changes not effective until the first of the following month?

Once payroll is locked for processing for the monthly payroll, your plan changes will become effective for the first of the following month, so that a retroactive payroll situation is not created. Please pay attention to the start of the plan dates on the review and save screen as well as on your confirmation statement. This will not impact bi-weekly payroll.
