What is a Humana EAP?
Just what exactly is a Humana employee assistance program? Well, simply put, it’s a way for your employer to pay for mental health or addiction treatment through Humana.
Of course, that’s a vast oversimplification of what a Humana employee assistance program is. A detailed breakdown is as follows:
Employers have almost always offered some form of employee assistance programs for mental health issues. However, when the Affordable Care Act took effect, mental health and substance abuse insurance benefits became mandatory. This is where Humana employee assistance programs step in.
Employers began to offer Humana EAPs as a way to offset the cost of substance abuse treatment. After all, rehab can get expensive! With employers now having to offer some form of mental health and substance abuse assistance, it seemed as good an option as any to take out specific insurance EAPs.
So, what is a Humana employee assistance program? Again, we return to the simple answer. It’s a way for your employer to cover some, or perhaps all, of the cost of treatment.
Benefits of a Humana EAP
While employee assistance programs from Humana have a number of benefits, omitted here for the sake of brevity, there’s one central advantage. Humana EAPs help cover the cost of addiction rehab.
Rehab is expensive! There’s no way around it. If you or someone you love is struggling with substance abuse, they need help. That help, though, can often reach upwards of ten thousand dollars.
A Humana employee assistance program helps ease that cost. Sometimes it will cover all expenses associated with drug treatment. Sometimes it will cover most. Sometimes it will only cover a small portion of the expenses.
The quickest way to learn how much a Humana employee assistance program will cover is to call a treatment center. For that matter, call Lighthouse today at 1-844-I-CAN-CHANGE or 1-(561)-381-0015.

Am I Covered by a Humana EAP?
This is one of the most asked questions we hear. “Am I covered by a Humana employee assistance program?” The short answer is, well, there is no short answer. It all depends.
It’s simply not possible to give a definitive answer as to whether you’re covered or not. It’s even irresponsible to give a general answer like “most people are covered by a Humana EAP.”
The only way to learn if you’re covered is to have a professional verify your insurance. There is a quick way to learn if you’re not covered. Are you employed and receiving benefits? If your answer is yes, you may be covered. If your answer is no, you’re not covered.
