Apply for Insurance Waiver (Students only):

Students who purchase their own private health insurance may request an "insurance waiver" online, which is an exception from the mandatory Blue Care Network (BCN) policy. Students may qualify for the waiver by providing proof that their private health insurance meets certain minimum requirements.

To apply for an insurance waiver, please log in your STUINFO account with your NetID and password. Click on "Insurance Waiver" under the "Other" tab on the upper right corner. Complete the insurance waiver questions and send the following two documents to MSU Human Resources:

  1. A copy of your insurance policy with the schedule of benefits
  2. Enrollment proof (show your full name, enrollment start date and end date)

Where to send the documents?

It generally takes 2 weeks to review your application. You will receive the result by email. If your tuition bill is due before the application is processed, pay your bill first and get a refund later (if approved). Paying first avoids the accumulation of late fees.
