Get easy access to the state's largest HMO health care network

As a college student, you have enough to worry about. With access to the Michigan State University Health Plan, you now have one less worry. The plan provided through Blue Care Network is available to undergraduate students. You’ll just need to enroll. If you're a graduate assistant, international student or a college of medicine student, you're automatically enrolled, but you'll need to sign up your dependents.

Enroll yourself and your dependents in this plan or make a payment.

Create a Blue Cross member account to manage
your coverage, costs and claims information.

Log in to your Blue Cross member account.


Pay a fixed dollar amount
each time you get certain
kinds of care.


When you enroll, you’ll get
a primary care physician who’s based
at Olin Health Center on campus.


Your benefits include
ER visits, routine checkups
and specialists.

How does it work?

As a student or graduate assistant enrolled in the plans, you’ll be assigned a primary care physician, or PCP, who’s based at Olin Health Care Center on campus. Your PCP is your first point of contact for health care. These doctors:

  • Provide routine health services
  • Give referrals for visits with specialists

Using Olin Health Center

If you go to Olin, you'll generally pay less out of pocket for your care. If you need to see a doctor outside of Olin Health Center, you’ll need a referral for care within 45 miles of campus. Without it, your care won’t be covered. However, you don't need a referral for ER visits. If you have children under 17, they’ll be assigned a Blue Care Network pediatrician within 45 miles of Olin.

International coverage

If you’re participating in MSU’s Study Abroad program you can use the
GeoBlue plan for doctor visits, hospital stays and prescriptions.

International students and anyone traveling outside of Michigan has access to 
Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core.
