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. If you were enrolled in health care coverage as a student, then you should receive a 1095-B. The information you report from the form will be used to determine whether you will pay a penalty for failing to have health care coverage as required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also called Obamacare. Think of the form as your “proof of insurance” for the IRS.

For more information about 1095-B please visit the IRS website.
