Legal and Financial Consultation Services

There are two ways to use EAP: 

  1. Access their website at https://www.magellanascend.com/. Here you'll find tips on everything from parenting, to weight loss, to depression. These services are free to you, as an employee, and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 
  2. Call EAP at 1-800-424-4831. As an employee,  you are eligible to receive up to 8 consultations per issue, per year. If the issue requires more than 8 consultations, EAP will refer you to the health plan and/or community for further assistance. If a referral is made to a private counselor or community agency, the individual is responsible through health insurance or personal resources for payment to the counselor or agency for all services rendered. Your dependents (spouses and children who qualify as a dependent status) may also use this benefit.

Coupon Savings are also available through EAP in your area.


Mindfulness and Eating

In this busy world, it’s common to quickly devour meals in between (or during!) other pressing tasks. Perhaps you stare at a screen while eating, and in a blink the meal is gone and you barely noticed it. This is mindless eating whereby your primary attention is elsewhere—not on your food. Learn how to improve your eating habits by practicing mindfulness around food.
