Behavioral Health

All our plans offer access to the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through Cigna Behavioral Health, a free, confidential service that offers immediate help, referrals and online resources for a range of behavioral, family and care-giving, financial, health and other life issues. We offer a stand-alone EAP plan that parishes may elect to offer to their employees who opt out of medical benefits coverage. (The EAP is already included as part of every medical plan offering).
