Resources to Help You Take Care of Yourself or Others

If you or a loved one is struggling with life’s challenges, finding a mental health professional to talk to quickly can make a big difference.  The Health Trust offers several resources to assist members, so that you can choose the one that best meets your needs.

Don’t forget that the Health Trust waives the copays for all visits for mental health and substance use disorder conducted via telehealth.  It has been shown that technology works well for this type of care, and telehealth has greatly expanded access to experienced professionals.

Talkspace is a service that provides confidential counseling by text, audio, or video — whatever way feels right for you.  The service pairs you with a licensed, experienced therapist who fits your needs and preferences, so that you feel comfortable from the start.  You can message your therapist whenever something comes up — or schedule a virtual visit to connect in real time.

Talkspace is covered under the Anthem EAP for three visits, or it is also now covered under your behavioral health benefits if you have a Health Trust medical plan.  To get started, use a web browser to register at, and enter the letters “EAP”, a space, and “MMEHT” in the “Organization name” field. Once all your information has been completed you will receive information on providers who match your criteria.

To better address mental health and substance use disorders as the chronic conditions they are, Aspire365 was created to deliver long-term in-home treatment and recovery to patients 12 years of age and over.  Aspire365 clients are paired with a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals to deliver one on one personalized care over a 12-month period. To learn more about Aspire 365 please see the brochure on the Health Trust website, call 385.352.9696, or email

The Health Trust, in conjunction with Anthem, provides an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to all employers that participate in the Health Trust health plan.  Anthem EAP offers many great resources to deal with everyday problems and questions, in addition to mental health services. Licensed mental health professionals are available 24/7 without an appointment and at no charge. Employees may speak with a professional counselor near their work or home, and you get a referral for up to three in-person visits at no cost. The service is confidential, in accordance with federal and state law, and professional ethical standards.

The Anthem EAP covers all employees, even those who are not enrolled in the health plan.  It also covers the household members of all employees.  Unfortunately, retirees are not eligible to use this service. To access the EAP call 1-800-647-9151 or go to, choose Login in the Members box and enter “MMEHT”.

The Health Trust has a one-page flyer which outlines the many resources and programs available to you and your family.  Please call Member Services at 1-800-852-8300 with any questions.
