According to the United States Department of Labor, Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) can save employers between five and 16 dollars for every dollar they invest.1
Nothing impacts personal performance and productivity more than personal issues. Stress, depression, substance abuse, relationships, legal and financial troubles can soon translate into lost days from work or school, declining work quality, workplace conflicts, turnover and ultimately higher costs for members and their insurance payors.
That's why for more than 30 years Magellan has partnered with customer organizations, their members and our network clinicians to help individuals address personal issues early minimizing the impact on productivity and the need for higher, more costly levels of care. Magellan's EAP addresses a number of issues including:
- Stress management
- Child and elder care challenges
- Alcohol and drug abuse
- Emotional problems
- Marriage, family and relationship issues
