Student Health Service at Olin Health Center and the Neighborhoods

Olin Health Center, located on East Circle Drive, is the primary on-campus location for outpatient medical and health promotion services for Michigan State University students. Medical services include primary care, women’s health, and sports medicine.  Additional services provided at Olin Health Center include laboratory, pharmacy, physical therapy, X-ray, allergy therapy and immunizations, HIV testing, and SPARTANfit exercise programs as well as massage, Reiki, and reflexology.  Parking is available in the adjacent parking ramp. A Courtesy Van is available to provide transportation to and from Olin Health Center to patients who, because of illness or injury, are otherwise unable to visit Olin.  Additional primary care clinics are located in Brody, Holden, Hubbard, and McDonel halls.  The Phone Information Nurse is available for health-related questions 24 hours per day.  Additional services, including the Health Promotion office, nutrition counseling, wellness coaching, and Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) programs are located in the Student Services Building.

MSU Student Health Services is accredited by the Joint Commission and staffed with board-certified physicians and certified healthcare professionals.

Michigan State University and MSU College of Law students and their spouses/domestic partners are eligible for Student Health Services.  Students are encouraged to secure health insurance coverage.  The university will subsidize the first three medical office visits each year for students enrolled in MSU classes (this does not apply to MSU Law students). There will be a bill for the fourth and subsequent visits, as well as for other services. As a service to patients, charges for students with health insurance will be billed directly to the student’s insurance company.

Information about the Student Insurance plan is available through the Michigan State University Benefits Office at 1-800-353-4434, email SolutionsCenter@hr.msu.edu, or www.hr.msu.edu/benefits/students/index.html.

The Michigan State University student or spouse identification card and insurance information should be presented when service is requested.  For information regarding appointments, office hours, services and charges, visit the MSU Student Health Services Web site at www.olin.msu.edu or email olin@msu.edu.
