Carrot

There is no one way to define a family—families and household arrangements are diverse. That’s why Nutanix now offers Carrot, a family-forming benefit that provides personalized support on your path to parenthood.

Carrot’s platform includes unlimited, free virtual visits with Carrot’s team of family-forming experts. These experts include reproductive endocrinologists, urologists, adoption experts, doulas, midwives, LGBTQ+ family-forming experts, and mental health professionals.

Your family-forming journey is supported by Carrot in a number of ways:

  • Fertility care: Care and services associated with understanding your reproductive health, intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), or non-gestational carrier-related donor materials, services, and interventions. Note: You don’t need a fertility diagnosis to use Carrot’s services
  • Adoption: International, domestic, and foster care adoption services from an eligible provider
  • Surrogacy: Legally allowed care, services, interventions, and medications associated with family forming when working with a gestational carrier (GC)
  • Fertility preservation: Care and services associated with freezing or storing reproductive tissue, eggs, embryos, or sperm for future use
  • Pregnancy: Access to Carrot’s team of specialists—including midwives, obstetricians and gynecologists, doulas, and lactation consultants—who are available to answer your questions.

In addition, Carrot supports your family planning journey through:

  • A customized plan and care team
  • One-on-one consultations with navigation experts who can help connect you to providers and book your appointments
  • Curated resources from our library of expert-authored articles and videos
  • At-home support through Carrot’s telehealth platform and partners, including discounted access to:
    • The Ava bracelet, a clinically backed ovulation tracking tool that helps people get pregnant faster through timed intercourse
    • Legacy, a digital fertility clinic that helps Carrot members test, freeze, and improve the quality of their sperm
  • Access to mental health providers supporting you throughout your journey
  • Exclusive discounts and expedited appointments at 3,100+ clinics and 1,700+ attorneys and agencies in more than 60 countries
  • Carrot Rx®, which offers significant savings on fertility medications, with easy ordering and virtual clinician support anytime, day or night
  • Carrot Card®, a debit card that lets you pay for eligible care and services without waiting for reimbursement

Eligibility

You’re eligible for Carrot benefits when you’re covered under a Nutanix medical plan. Your spouse or domestic partner can use these benefits too when they’re covered by your medical plan. Dependent children are not eligible for this benefit.

Carrot funds

You have unlimited access to the platform and a lifetime Nutanix-funded benefit of up to $15,000 per family across all of Carrot’s benefits. You can access these funds through the Carrot Card® or through reimbursement on the Carrot platform.

You can use these funds to cover:

  • Infertility diagnosis, studies, and testing
  • Donors and cryopreservation
  • Stimulated intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF)
  • Eligible medications
  • Adoption benefits
  • Surrogacy benefits

Important notes:

  • If you’re enrolled in the UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA plan, you must meet your plan deductible prior to accessing your Carrot funds for medical expenses.
  • When you use the funds for certain nonmedical expenses or reimbursements, this may be a taxable benefit. If an expense is taxable, it will be reflected in your paycheck within two pay periods, and you will be responsible for the tax. Contact Carrot support to confirm whether a specific expense or reimbursement is a taxable benefit.

Enrolling

Your Carrot plan is the key to your benefits. Once you have a plan, you can schedule unlimited expert chats, search our database of top providers, access your Nutanix-sponsored funds, and more. Sign up now and learn more.
