At Central Michigan University, we prioritize the health and well-being of our faculty and staff, and this page will guide you through the various plans and benefits available to ensure you receive the health coverage you need.

Staff, fixed-term faculty, medical faculty and postdoctoral research fellows

All offered medical plans for these employee groups are PPO (preferred provider organization) plans through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, the largest health insurer in Michigan. Each medical plan is paired with prescription coverage through CVS Caremark, a nationwide pharmacy benefit manager.
