Ferris State University offers excellent benefits packages for eligible employees.  Eligibility is derived from type and length of employment as well as any applicable collective bargaining agreements or personnel plans. (NOTE: Not all employees may be eligible for all benefits.)

These documents are intended to be only a brief description of the benefits available. If there are any disagreements between this document and the legal plan documents that govern each plan, the plan document will always govern. 

Plan documents are available through the Human Resources office.


Virtual Care

Virtual care gives you access to board-certified doctors on nights, weekends and even holidays for health issues. Virtual care connects you with a doctor over the phone, through video, or simply by filling out an online questionnaire. Depending on your condition and the type of virtual care you choose, a doctor can:

  • Prescribe a medication and send it to your preferred pharmacy
  • Develop a treatment plan
  • Notify your primary care doctor with current information
  • Make follow-up recommendations, including referrals to see a specialist
