Employer Assistance Program

Coverage for you and your Capital BlueCross-covered employees at no additional charge

Capital BlueCross offers coverage for counseling and other services through an employee assistance program (EAP) for members of qualifying groups.1 Download tools and resources to help educate your employees about the EAP, which is offered by Mazzitti & Sullivan EAP Services, an independent company that provides Employee Assistance Programs.

What is included in an EAP?

Every subscriber and each covered dependent receives up to four (4) counseling sessions (face to face, over the phone, and/or virtual) with any one of thousands of therapists within the EAP network, conveniently located near work or home. The counseling sessions renew after a two month break (up to 12 per year per person). All subscribers and their covered dependents also have access to thousands of other resources online to help lower stress and improve their wellbeing.

These online resources can provide answers to questions such as:

  • Should I lease or buy a car?
  • How can I set up a budget at home?
  • Where can I get legal documents to save on attorney fees?

How does an EAP help my business?

EAPs have the potential to:

  • Reduce Turnover
  • Increase Productivity
  • Decrease Absenteeism
  • Improve Supervisor Effectiveness
  • Reduce Risk of Litigation
  • Decrease Risk of Workplace Violence
  • Lower Health Insurance Utilization
