Access Enrollee Assistance Program Benefits

If you are going through the emotional toll of a separation or divorce, need help adjusting to life changes, or are experiencing stress at work and/or home, take advantage of free Enrollee Assistance Program (EAP) benefits.  Members of Tufts Navigator, Tufts Spirit, and any of the UniCare State Indemnity Plans have free EAP benefits that include three or four face-to-face counseling visits per year, depending on your health plan.  In addition to EAP counseling benefits, you and your covered spouse and dependents can access other helpful services:

Financial Counseling:  If you need help repairing your credit report, managing debt, or with budgeting, this service includes a 30-minute telephone consultation with a financial counselor.

Child and Elder Care Benefit:  Choosing a child and elder care facility can be overwhelming.  This service will help you identify a provider that meets your needs.  You’ll receive materials that include helpful website links and referral information to providers in your area.

Financial Planning:  If you would like to plan ahead for college costs, retirement, and other long-term financial needs, this service includes a 30-minute initial consultation with a financial planner and 15% off their hourly rate for services contracted beyond the initial consultation.

Legal Consultations:  If you need legal help for a divorce, child custody, bankruptcy, estate planning or more, this service will provide you with a free 30-minute consultation with an attorney and 25% off the hourly rate for services contracted beyond the initial consultation.

If you are a member of Tufts Navigator, Tufts Spirit, or any of the UniCare State Indemnity plans, contact Beacon Health Options (1.855.750.8980) to access your EAP and behavioral health benefits.  For members of other GIC health plans, contact your health plan for mental health/substance abuse benefits.
