Back-Up Care Advantage Program
The Back-Up Care Advantage Program provides a safety net for those days when regular child-care or adult/elder-care arrangements fall through.

The benefit is limited to 80 hours per calendar year for a co-pay of $4/hr (minimum 4 hours). For complete information on the Back-Up Care Advantage Program, please call 800-557-0847 or visit http://backup.brighthorizons.com/ (username: SHC; password: backup1).
