How it works

If you already registered for the EAP in the past, you do not need to register again. If you haven’t used the EAP services and would like to, register at myCigna.com using Employer ID baesystems. Confide/EAP’s dedicated team of advocates is available 24/7 and conveniently located on myCigna.com. Here’s how it works:

  1. Call Confide/EAP at 1-800-591-9339 to get help for a specific concern.
  2. Connect with a behavioral health specialist for a confidential discussion over the phone, virtually, or in person. Your behavioral health specialist will help you find an in-network, licensed provider with available appointments, and guide you toward additional programs and services that meet your needs.
  3. Receive a follow-up call from Confide/EAP within three business days. During this call, your Confide/EAP advocate will confirm that you were able to access necessary resources and/or schedule a therapy appointment.

Need to speak with someone about an urgent mental health issue? Your Confide/EAP advocate will help you connect with a therapist in as few as five business days. Call 1-800-591-9339 to connect today.

Get self-guided digital support and resources

If you prefer to tackle behavioral health concerns or seek support independently, Confide/EAP offers:

  • The Happify app, which helps you build resilience, reduce stress and anxiety, develop mindfulness tactics, and gain confidence, all through science-based activities.
  • iPrevail, an online health and wellness program that connects you with confidential support groups and self-guided cognitive behavioral therapy to manage issues like depression and anxiety.

Addressing coronavirus concerns

Ongoing and evolving news of the coronavirus outbreak can trigger fears and concerns. While feelings of anxiety are normal, they can make day-to-day life more difficult. Uncertainty about what lies ahead and the need to adapt to new and, for some, unprecedented circumstances can deepen our worries. Confide/EAP is offering several on-demand webcasts that address the impact of these challenges. These one-hour webcasts offer strategies for managing stressful thoughts and emotions. Access these webcasts through the Cigna EAP Wellness Webcast Portal.
