Lean on us

Maybe you're a few months behind on bills and want to get back on track. Maybe you're new to town and looking for a daycare center.

What is EAP, anyway?

You may have heard about EAP but aren't sure what it is. EAP is a service available to you and members of your household at no extra cost. It's designed to help you with everyday problems and questions, big or small. No need to fill out paperwork or make an appointment to speak with an EAP staff member. Just call 800-865-1044 or visit anthemEAP.com (enter WKU to log in). You'll be connected in an instant. We're here 24 hours a day, every day, to help you.

When you or a household member contacts us, we'll work with you to figure out the next steps. If you need counseling, we can arrange up to five free visits with licensed professionals. If you have financial or legal questions, we can put you in touch with a financial advisor or a lawyer.

Your privacy matters

Remember, EAP is here for you 24/7, so you can call at the time and place that are right for you. Your privacy is important to us. No one will know you've called EAP unless you give them permission in writing.*

 After you make the first phone call to us, we can refer you to a licensed counselor in you area who's a member of our network. Your EAP membership entitles you to up to five free visits for each issue you're facing. Then, if you need ongoing assistance, we'll help you connect with a qualified resource.

 *In accordance with federal and state law, and professional ethical standards.
