This to provide a wide variety of employee assistance, including behavioral health. This coverage must be paid for by the employer, not deducted from payroll, due to the mandate of the Affordable Care Act. This coverage is automatically included for all employees already on the Diocesan Health Plan. To enroll an employee who has waived other medical coverage, contact me directly. Details about the EAP are available on CPG's website here
EyeMed vision is included in all Diocesan Health Plans at no additional charge. Details of coverage are on the Side-by-Side comparison above.
