Comprehensive. Caring. Confidential.

No one is immune to personal concerns, and when left unaddressed, they can impact your emotional well-being. Memorial Choice Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is designed to help you resolve personal concerns before they become more serious and difficult to manage.

You, your spouse and your dependent children can receive short-term, professional counseling to address a wide variety of concerns. Memorial Choice EAP also provides access to information and resources that can help you answer virtually any personal question or concern.

Memorial Choice EAP is highly confidential and all applicable state and federal laws regarding confidentiality are applicable. Any information regarding counseling services can only be shared with written approval and counseling services are not documented within the electronic health records to ensure privacy is guarded.

There is no cost to use Memorial Choice EAP services for up to six free counseling sessions, per issue, per year. If ongoing counseling or specialized treatment is recommended, your health insurance or other benefits may apply. In such cases, Memorial Choice EAP will coordinate a referral to the most appropriate and cost-effective provider.
