MSU Student Health Plans
Blue Care Network (BCN) of Michigan is the health insurance plan administrator for Michigan State University students and their eligible dependents. All students will be eligible to voluntarily enroll in the health insurance coverage. With this coverage, you’ll have access to quality health care through hospitals, physicians and affiliated health care professionals in the BCN provider network. Providers can be located on the BCN website.
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 from Blue Care Network. 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). The individual mandate under PPACA was repealed and the 1095-B is no longer required for individuals to report when preparing tax information. 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.
