Employee Assistance Program
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.
Access EAP at www.EAPHelplink.com or by calling 1-800-999-1077.
