Did you know that free help is available? RPS pays for an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to assist employees and their household members in getting help with some of a family's most private issues for free. These problems may include, but are not limited to: issues with family, alcohol, drugs, emotions, stress, work/life balance, legal or financial concerns. Visit the RPS Benefits page for details.
Here is a little bit about my personal experience: Telehealth is one option that is offered by Cigna. My family has been able to schedule time with a locally-based mental health professional for a virtual/telehealth appointment. What does this mean? It means that we will meet with a counselor from the comfort of our own home over a secure online platform through the internet. This works great for our specific situation because we can decide to move to face-to-face services once the spread of COVID gets under control, OR we can remain on the telehealth option. My family's first 4 sessions will also be FREE!
I also wish that I had known about some of the other telehealth options before I spent 2 hours and $50 on my last urgent care visit. For non-emergency situations, check out the Cigna website to see if telehealth is an option for you.
