Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
All state health plans offered to VMI employees and their dependents
have employee assistance programs (EAPs). Included are up to four
sessions at no charge for such services as mental health, alcohol or
drug abuse assessment, child or elder care, grief counseling and legal
or financial services. EAP counselors are available to assist employees
with problems related to:
- Mental health
- Child care
- Elder care
- Spousal/child/parent abuse
- Career planning
In general, care must be authorized in advance. You or your eligible
dependent will speak to an EAP specialist who will assess your problem
and coordinate assistance. Should your problem require mental health or
substance abuse care, you will be referred to a provider, under your
mental health and substance abuse benefit. Your EAP specialist or care
manager will arrange a referral according to your specific needs.
Contact your plan's Member Services department for more information.
