A Benefit of the State Employee Health Plan

What is the Employee Assistance Program?

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a special service provided for State of Kansas benefits eligible employees and their dependents at no charge.  The EAP provides information, short-term counseling, advice, and referrals from licensed professionals who understand the typical stresses we all face day in and day out.

In today’s fast-paced world, trying to manage work, home, family, and all the associated demands can sometimes be a real test.  And occasionally, wouldn’t it be nice if there were an experienced, objective professional who could answer a confidential question or help with one of life’s concerns?

Who Is Eligible to Use the EAP Program?

  • The EAP is available to all active, benefits-eligible employees of the State of Kansas, their family members living in the same household or dependent children.
  • All active, benefits-eligible employees of our Non State Employer Groups, their family members living in the same household or dependent children.
  • Benefits-eligible employees who have been laid off/terminated are eligible to use the EAP for six months after layoff.
  • Retirees and COBRA participants are not eligible to participate.
