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 offers monthly tips and tricks in all areas of health and wellness:

October theme: Know Your Numbers: Screening Adds Up To Better Health
Webinar Title: Better Health Through Screening
Date available: 
October 18 

To register, visit www.EAPHelplink.com and enter your code: UI1. Look for Online Seminars in the lower right hand corner of the homepage. Advanced registration is required for the live broadcast. Since these times may not be convenient for everyone, the webinar will also be archived on the site and available for viewing at a later date.
