Optum Employee Assistance Program is a valuable resource for employees and their families, providing confidential support for a range of personal and work-related issues that may impact their mental health and wellbeing. The EAP services are typically free and easily accessible by phone, email, or in-person, depending on the program’s offerings.
Optum United Healthcare is a type of health insurance coverage that provides benefits for mental health and substance use disorder treatment services. Depending on the specific plan, the benefit may cover services such as therapy, counseling, medication management, and inpatient care. However, as you noted, the employee may still be responsible for paying co-pays, co-insurance, or deductibles for these services.
Overall, it’s essential to understand the specific details of both your EAP and Behavioral Health benefits offered by your employer to take full advantage of the resources available to you for maintaining your mental health and wellbeing.
