All new CMS employees and newly benefit eligible employees have 30 days from their start date to enroll in benefits. You MUST enroll during this 30 day window or wait until the next Annual Enrollment to enroll.
New CMS employees receive a personalized enrollment session with a benefit counselor. Call the New Hire Enrollment Center at 1.877.401.6390 Monday - Friday between 8 – 5 p.m. eastern time to schedule your telephonic appointment.
Your benefit counselor will explain the CMS benefits, answer your questions, and assist you with enrollment in the eBenefitsNow system. Before your appointment, please review the benefits information provided on the CMS Intranet or the cms.hrintouch.com site to be best prepared. You may also wish to be at a computer when you call.
