We recommend that you initially enroll your dependent(s) using the computers in the MSU Human Resources Office in the Nisbet Building (1407 S. Harrison Rd., Suite 110) where there are people to assist you.

Spouses and OEI must go to Olin first before going to any other doctor or treatment facility UNLESS it is an emergency or you are more than 45 miles from the MSU East Lansing campus.

Dependent children cannot go to Olin and should instead use the MSU Health Team. For more information visit or call the Pediatric Primary Care Clinic at 517-353-3003 or 517-342-6413.
