Effective July 1, 2011 our EAP vendor changed to:



Employee Assistance Program

All employees and their dependents, regardless of whether or not they are enrolled in the Blue Cross of Idaho Medical Plan have up to 5 one-hour sessions per family member each benefit year. These sessions have no out-of-pocket co-payments and do not count against the available Mental Health and substance Abuse Services. EAP benefits must be pre-authorized through ComPsych.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services
Through the State's Group Health Insurance Coverage there are services for emotional, behavioral, mental health and substance abuse issues for each enrolled individual. Expenses for both inpatient and outpatient mental health and substance abuse services may be applied to your Blue Cross of Idaho Medical Plan deductible and coinsurance, (PPO or Traditional). There is a maximum of 8 days of inpatient care or 30 visits for outpatient care per person, per benefit period available in the plan.
