GET READY

Here are the steps to help you prepare for your new family member.

step 01

Prepare for your new addition

No matter who you are or how you’re building your family, we are here to help prepare you:
step 02

Enroll your new dependent in benefits within 30 days

Log in to nestle.ehr.com or call the Nestlé Benefits Service Center at 1-877-637-2255, option #2. Adding a child to Nestlé health care benefits is a qualified family status change.

BE AWARE: You will have a gap in coverage if you enroll your child after 30 days but within 60 days if you don’t currently cover other dependent children on your benefits.

REMEMBER: In addition to health care benefits, consider increasing your contribution to your Health Savings Account (HSA), if you’re enrolled in the SureSAVER or HealthSAVER plan. Also, review your life insurance needs and update your beneficiaries. You may also want to update your tax withholding.

If you’re having a baby and would like to enroll in the Dependent Care FSA, the election must be made during your initial or annual enrollment window prior to arrival. You will not have a mid-year opportunity to add this benefit when the baby is born.

step 03

Find a pediatrician

You can find an in-network pediatrician or other providers by going to Carefirst.com/nestle.
