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, including 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

Note: You don’t need a fertility diagnosis to use Carrot’s services


  • International, domestic, and foster care adoption services from an eligible provider


  • Legally allowed care, services, interventions, and medications associated with family forming when working with a gestational carrier (GC)

Fertility preservation

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

Carrot Funds

You have unlimited access to the platform and a Nutanix funded benefit of up to $15,000 per lifetime 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 this fund to cover:

  • Infertility diagnosis, studies, and tests
  • 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 UHC HDHP plan, you must meet your plan deductible prior to accessing your Carrot funds for medical expenses.
  • When you use funds for certain non-medical expenses or reimbursements, it may be a taxable benefit. If an expense is taxable, it will be reflected in your paycheck within two pay periods and you’re responsible for the tax. Contact Carrot support to confirm if a specific expense or reimbursement is a taxable benefit.


Your Carrot plan is also the key to your benefit. Once you have a plan, you can schedule unlimited expert chats, search our database of top providers, access your Nutanix sponsored funds, and more. Learn more, or sign up now.
