How can I add my new baby to my membership?

You can do it via Online Member Services. If it’s within 2 months of the birth, your baby won’t have any waiting periods for hospital treatment (if needed).

Here’s what you need to know (based on your current membership type).


Family or Single Parent

If you already have one or more kids on your membership, you can add another at no additional cost.
