“An Employee Assistance Program (EAP), also referred to as a wellness program, is designed to offer access to a variety of services, including mental health care, to employees of an organization. The program provides employees with free access to short-term, solution-focused care that is generally time-limited. EAPs often help increase access to care and, as a result, give clinicians a way to serve clients who may not otherwise be able to afford mental health services.
EAPs differ from commercial insurance plans, and there are several potential benefits to consider when thinking about whether to accept EAP plans in your private practice.”
Dr. Ajita Robinson was recently featured on the TherapyNotes blog, writing about accepting EAPs in private practice.
