The Student Advisory Group (SIAG) meets periodically to discuss student insurance issues such as health plan cost, utilization, plan design, and renewal. Members of the group are representatives of the MSU community which the student health insurance plan serves, including students and departmental representatives.


The 1095-B contains detailed information about the health care coverage provided by the insurance provider. The information provided in the 1095-B was previously used when preparing taxes to provide proof of coverage under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA); also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The individual mandate under PPACA was repealed and the 1095-B is no longer required for individuals to report when preparing tax information. 

For more information about 1095-B, please visit the IRS website as well as their FAQ Page.

Students who have questions or would like a 1095-B form may contact BCN Customer Service at 1-800-287-4103 and request a copy to be printed and mailed.
