• Do I need an appointment to sign up for MyMSUHealth?

  • When does my temporary password expire?

    Temporary passwords have different expirations based on how you received them. Text-based temporary passwords expire in 6 hours, email temporary passwords expire in 24 hours.

  • Why doesn't my username and password work?

    If you have created a portal account, and haven't signed in or used the account in more than a year, the account is set to a deactivated stage.

    Contact the office you set up the account with and ask them to resend the temporary password link and this should re-establish your account.

  • How do I reset my patient portal password?
    1. Send a password reset link to your email by clicking "Forgot Password?" on the Patient Portal login page and enter the email associated with your account. Follow the Reset Password link received in your email from the MyMSUHealth Patient Portal. Enter your new password and click "Save and continue" to confirm. You will be asked to confirm the security option previously established and select "Verify" to enter the patient portal.
    2. If unable to complete the security step, click the "Cannot verify? Reset your account" link at the bottom of the page. This will walk you through the account reset process when unable to verify the Patient Portal security option (either by losing access to the recovery phone or forgetting answer to security question)
    3. Clicking the link surfaces a warning your Patient Portal will be recreated by proceeding with the account reset, which may require verification of the phone number on file
    4. To proceed click "Reset My Account" (while loading the button will be faded and unclickable, as well as the appearance of a spinning icon and warning)
    5. Once the account is rebuilt, you will be redirected to a page to create a new password. Select "Save and Continue" after setting a password, accept terms and conditions to recreate the account.
    6. Click "Continue" to set up security options, confirm personal details
      • NOTE: You may be asked to verify the phone number on file with your MSU care provider before being able to proceed into the Patient Portal
    7. Enter patient portal
  • Can I change the email address I use to log in?/ Why can't I change my email address?
    Since your email address is how we recognize your account across the different patient portals and health records you may access, you cannot change the email address associated with your account.
    However if you no longer have access to this email or would like to use a different one, you can register a new account under your preferred email address.
    To do so, please contact your clinic to have them update your email address on file and send you a new invitation to the MSUHealth patient portal.
    You can create a new account through this invitation, after which you’ll be able to use your new account email and password wherever you see the "Log in with athenahealth" button.

    Typically, there are a few reasons your account can’t be found:

    1. Your name, phone number or address doesn't match what we have on file for you
    2. When signing up as a Family Member you have input your information instead of the patient’s information on the initial screen, OR
    3. You haven’t been seen within the past 3 years.
