EAP, Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse

One of the exceptional features of our health plans is the behavioral health coverage. All employees, and family members who reside in their household, are eligible for the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).  The EAP provides up to 5 free visits on a variety of issues. 

If you need further assistance and you are enrolled in one of the City of Scottsdale's medical plans, you may have more face-to-face visits.

The number of visits you have may be subject to medical necessity.  If you are on the Aetna Select or Aetna Choice POSII,  each visit is a $20 co-payment for outpatient visits through the CIGNA network.  If you are on the Aetna Choice POSII HSA plan, each visit is subject to the applicable deductible and then paid at 90% through the Aetna Choice POSII network.
