Q. What is an EAP?

An employee assistance program is a benefit, like medical insurance provided by your employer but without employee co-pays and deductibles. While medical coverages primarily concern an employee’s physical health, EAP services are primarily concentrated on emotional health and wellbeing.

Q. How does an EAP work?

Employers pay a premium flat rate or “per employee per month” amount to provide short-term counseling, trainings, and crisis services to help employees through difficult individual or collective situations that inevitably arise. All employees are eligible for the free services, regardless of whether they have enrolled in health insurance benefits. Counseling is confidential: it does not go on health or medical records. If an employee chooses to extend to longer term care beyond their EAP sessions, then insurance and health records do become activated.

Q. What if I need long-term counseling?
