Medical Insurance

MSU graduate teaching and research assistants automatically participate in a medical benefits plan, the details of which can be reviewed at the MSU Human Resources: Student Health Insurance website. Spouses and children may be included in the university's plan at an additional cost to the graduate assistant.

There are additional options for spouses and children however, just as there are for graduate students who do not hold teaching or research assistantships. It is worthwhile to explore these options on the MSU Human Resources website. One program MIChild ("My Child"), operated by the State of Michigan, is a very attractive, comprehensive option for children living in households earning less than $27,000 annually. Details and procedures for enrolling in this plan can be reviewed online at the MIChild Program website.
