Is the program confidential?
Yes. Without your written consent, records cannot be released. Confidentiality is maintained according to all Federal and State guidelines.
What services does my EAP offer?
Your Concern benefit provides free, face-to-face counseling for personal issues and work-related concerns that can be resolved in a brief time period. In addition, Concern can refer you to a wide range of services, including legal, financial, family mediation and community resources.
What happens when I use up my eight EAP visits?
As you near the close of your eight free sessions, your counselor will discuss with you your options for continued care.
You may continue with your counselor and pay out of pocket their standard per session rate. You may also contact your employer’s behavior health benefit; many of our counselors are providers for insurance plans so you may be able to continue with the same counselor, depending on your plan.
Short-term counseling services are provided per problem type, per 12-month rolling calendar. For example: you are able to receive 8 sessions for the problem type of “Stress, Anxiety and Sadness”. The 12 month rolling calendar begins at the start of the first counseling session. You will be eligible to obtain new set of eight free sessions for the problem type of “Stress, Anxiety and Sadness” in 12 months.
Does the Concern benefit provide psychiatric services?
The Concern benefit covers short-term counseling but the benefit does not cover any services provided by a psychiatrist. Concern counselors are qualified to assess and refer to a psychiatrist if needed. If you need a referral to a psychiatrist it will likely be covered under your employer's behavioral health benefit. Your Concern counselor can help you to find a provider under your plan or make a referral to community resources.
