Employee Assistance Plan
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a free, confidential service that provides eligible employees and their families with the opportunity to discuss personal problems with a professional counselor, receive unlimited telephone and Internet access to resource and referral information, and obtain other self-help information.
You do not have to enroll in a medical plan to participate in the EAP. However, if you are enrolled in a medical plan, you may be able to maximize your benefits by accessing the free services of the EAP before using behavioral health benefits, which require you to pay a share of the cost.
The EAP’s Master’s-level, licensed professional counselors are available to you and your family 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Counselors can help with any situation that creates stress including:
- Family Problems
- Substance Abuse
- Legal Concerns
- Personal relationships
- Anger Management
To access this benefit, simply call the EAP at (800) 999-1077 and identify yourself as a University of Idaho employee. You can receive up to 8 free sessions per situation.
