A spouse is the individual to whom you’re lawfully married and not legally separated from. Spouses must live in the U.S. to be eligible for coverage.

Domestic partners

A qualified domestic partner is an individual with whom you’re in a domestic partnership, civil union or other similar formal relationship that’s not a marriage under state law.

For your domestic partner to be eligible for Nutanix benefits, you and your partner must satisfy either of these requirements:

  • Your domestic partner or civil union partner of the same or opposite sex that is currently certified and/or registered as such with any governmental body, pursuant to national, state, city, or local law; or
  • You have a committed relationship that has existed for at least 12 consecutive months prior to the date you’re requesting coverage for your domestic partner, you’ve maintained the same principal place of residence for at least six consecutive months prior to the date you’re requesting coverage, and you’re responsible to each other for the direction and financial management of your household.

Additionally, to be eligible, domestic partners must be:

  • Living in the United States;
  • At least 18 years old;
  • Not related by blood to a degree that would prohibit marriage in your state; and
  • Not married under statutory or common law, legally separated, or in a partnership with anyone else, and neither has been in such a relationship for the last 12 months.

Note: If you cover a domestic partner who does not qualify as a tax dependent, the value of these benefits is subject to imputed income.


Your eligible children include:

  • Your biological children
  • Your stepchildren
  • Your domestic partner’s children
  • Your legally adopted children, including children placed with you for adoption
  • Children for whom you’re responsible as a legal guardian or under the terms of a Qualified Medical Child Support Order (QMCSO)

Your children are eligible for medical, dental, and vision benefits through the month in which they turn age 26 or if they permanently move out of the U.S.

Children are eligible at any age if they have a physical or mental disability, are incapable of self-support, and are dependent upon you for support.

Note: If you cover a domestic partner’s child(ren) who does not qualify as a tax dependent, the value of these benefits is subject to imputed income.

Not eligible for Nutanix benefits

You are not eligible for Nutanix benefits if you are a(n):

  • Part-time employee who are scheduled to work less than 20 hours per week
  • Consultant
  • Temporary employee
  • Agency employee
  • Dependent who is not residing or living in the U.S.

Imputed Income for Domestic Partner Coverage

Qualified domestic partners and/or their eligible children may be enrolled in medical, dental, vision and voluntary life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance coverage. Due to IRS regulations, if you cover a domestic partner or domestic partner's child who does not qualify as a tax dependent, the value of these benefits is generally added to your taxable income and subject to federal and state income and payroll taxes. This practice is known as “imputed income.”

This means their coverage is a taxable benefit. The value of the benefit will be added to your paycheck in order for taxes to be deducted. Your imputed income will be included on your W-2. In addition, if you are required to pay a premium for the coverage, you will pay the premium for your domestic partner’s coverage on an after-tax basis. You can view more information about the 2022 imputed income value of benefit coverages here.

Your new hire benefits checklist

Use the checklist below to make sure you review your benefit options, enroll in benefits, and begin saving for retirement with the company's 401(k) plan.

1. During your first two weeks: Review and explore your benefits.

Take some time to understand all the benefits that Nutanix offers, and decide which coverage is right for you and your family.

Explore this site for details about all benefits to enroll in or take advantage of throughout the year. The following guides are available to help you with making your enrollment decisions:

2. Within 30 days: Enroll in your benefits.

You have 30 days from your date of hire to enroll in your Nutanix health and insurance benefits.

Once enrolled, it will take up to five business days for your information to be captured in the system. At that time, you can access your account online, print or save temporary cards, and access providers.

If you enroll in the UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA plan, your Health Savings Account (HSA) will be automatically set up on the first of the month following your hire date and enrollment. You will be required to then validate your account with HealthEquity to complete the setup. After your account is established, it will be funded by Nutanix. Delays in validating the account can delay funding.

What happens if you don’t enroll?

If you don’t enroll during this 30-day window, you will be automatically enrolled in the following benefits:

Your next opportunity to enroll in benefits will be during our annual Open Enrollment, typically held each year in the fall, unless you experience a qualifying life event during the year.

3. Within 60 days: Save for the future.

Be sure to determine how much you want to contribute to the Nutanix 401(k) Plan through payroll deductions. You’re immediately eligible to participate in the plan. After your first paycheck, visit the Fidelity website to make your contribution elections. Your contributions will take one to two pay periods to show up in your paycheck. If you don’t select a contribution rate within your first 45 days of eligibility (typically your hire date), you’ll be automatically enrolled at a 2% pretax contribution rate. You may choose to change your contribution rate and investment elections at any time.

You can easily enroll in the Nutanix 401(k) Plan and manage your account online or by phone:

  • Visit the Fidelity website – Enroll online at your convenience, any time of day or night.
  • Call 800-835-5097 – Representatives are available to help you Monday through Friday, from 5 a.m. – 5 p.m. PT
Important reminder!

Make sure to provide beneficiary information for your Nutanix 401(k) Plan account. Log in to your account on the Fidelity website. Then navigate to “Accounts & Benefits” and click “Update” to review your beneficiaries and make updates.

Ready to Enroll?

Log in to Workday, and follow the enrollment instructions in your Workday Inbox to make your 2022 benefit elections.

Remember, full-time employees who don’t enroll in medical coverage within 30 days of their hire date or when they first become eligible will automatically be enrolled in certain benefits through 2022. You can find these listed in the “What happens if you don’t enroll?” drop down above.

Opt-Out Credit

You’re able to opt out of medical coverage if you have other minimum essential coverage. When you opt out, you will receive a $200 per month credit. Nutanix follows the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) notice on how opt-out credits impact the affordability of employer-sponsored health coverage.

Minimum essential coverage is generally other employer-sponsored group medical plan coverage. By opting out of medical coverage provided by Nutanix, you’re required to provide proof of your enrollment in other minimum essential coverage. During the enrollment process, you will be required to attach documentation of your coverage, which includes your name, coverage period start date and active status. Typically, this documentation can be found on your insurance provider website under view/print member ID.

Please note:

  • Other minimum essential coverage cannot be individual coverage or coverage obtained through the public marketplace.
  • If you cannot provide reasonable evidence that you are enrolled in minimum essential coverage, you must enroll in a Nutanix medical plan. (Keep in mind this coverage is provided at no cost to you.)

Once reviewed and approved, you will receive your opt-out credits on a go-forward basis each paycheck. This credit does not apply when opting out of dental or vision coverage.

For further questions, contact The People Team by opening a ServiceNow ticket.

Changing Benefits After Enrollment

Life happens, and you might need to change your benefits during the year. If you experience a qualified life event, you have 30 days to make the necessary changes to your benefits. Without a qualified life event, you can make updates during the annual open enrollment period in the fall, which will be effective the following January.

ID Cards

When you enroll for certain plans through Nutanix, you will receive an ID or debit card. ID cards should be shared with your provider whenever you receive healthcare services. Debit cards can be used to pay for eligible expenses.

  • Medical: When you enroll in a new medical plan, you’ll receive a new ID card. Cards should arrive within 30 days of completing enrollment if you’re a new hire or in early January for any plan changes made during the annual open enrollment period in the fall. Your medical plan card is also your pharmacy benefit card.
  • Dental: You will receive an ID card for your dental benefits. You can access your benefits information on the Delta Dental website or you can give your name, date of birth, and Social Security number to your provider so they can access your coverage.
  • Vision: You won’t receive an ID card for your vision benefits. Instead, you can access your benefit information on the carrier website or you can give your name and the last four digits of your Social Security number to your provider so they can access your plan coverage.
  • Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs): If you enroll in the Healthcare FSA or Limited Purpose FSA, you’ll receive a debit card from HealthEquity within 30 days of your enrollment. Prior to receiving the card, you can submit reimbursements by accessing the HealthEquity website or via the app.
  • Health Savings Account (HSA): If you enroll in the UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA, you’ll have access to your Health Savings Account (HSA) funds through reimbursement or debit card. Your debit card will be mailed to you after the first of the month following your hire date and within 30 days of your enrollment. If you have previously had an HSA account with Health Equity, you won’t receive a card automatically but can request a debit card through the website.
