What is the Member Assistance Program (MAP)The Member Assistance Program (MAP) is a confidential counseling and treatment program. Easy access to counseling or treatment is a primary goal. Members should feel confident that their needs will be met professionally and confidentially. Benefits include, but are not limited to, family therapy, relationship and marital counseling and Hospice bereavement counseling.
What is the purpose of MAP?The purpose of MAP is to provide members and their families with a confidential, readily-accessible resource for assistance in resolving conflicts and achieving personal goals.
Is using MAP confidential?Self-referral to MAP is confidential unless there is a significant and immediate danger to the member, the organization, or the public.
Who is eligible to participate?All members and covered dependents are eligible to participate in MAP.
Where can I seek treatment or assistance when necessary?Participants must seek the services of a practitioner acting within the scope of their license (i.e. Licensed Consulting Psychologist, Licensed Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Licensed Clinical Therapist, Licensed Clinical Counselor, etc.). Licensed providers, regardless of Network status, will be paid without member responsibility for the first 5 visits. After 5 visits, seeking services of a Participating Provider is most cost effective. Benefits also include family therapy, relationship and marital counseling and Hospice bereavement counseling.
What if I need to take time off work?
Absences from work while participating in MAP are treated the same as any other medical absence. For all absences of four or more days, sick leave must be documented by a medical care provider within fifteen days. Supervisors are held to the same confidentiality requirements as for all types of medical absences.
