For many employees, an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can be the key to recovering from a traumatic event such as divorce, death in the family, or financial difficulties. The Health Trust, in conjunction with Anthem, provides an EAP to all employers that participate in the Health Trust health plan. The EAP is provided at no additional cost to employees or employers.
The Anthem EAP covers all employees, even those who are not enrolled in the health plan. It also covers the family members of all employees. Unfortunately, retirees are not eligible to use this service.
Anthem EAP offers many great resources to deal with everyday problems and questions. 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, 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.
Getting support is simple and quick! Simply call 1-800-647-9151 or go to www.anthemeap.com, choose Login in the Members box and enter “MMEHT”.

Other benefits of the Anthem EAP include:
Financial Services – Making ends meet can be a challenge. Maybe you have a lot of credit card debt, or you’re trying to stick to a budget. If you have questions, you can talk with a financial professional on topics such as getting out of debt, retirement, free identity theft monitoring and recovery and more!
Legal Services – If you have a legal problem, you may feel worried and stressed. After all, the law can be confusing. Anthem EAP can help you understand and work through legal issues, including small claims court, divorce and custody issues and criminal matters.
