Webinar: How to Increase Employee Access to Mental Health Benefits (31st July 2019 - 13:00 EST) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

July 5, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 5, 2019--

The “How To Increase Employee Access to Mental Health Benefits” webinar has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

A growing number of employees are living with mental health and substance use issues that impact their productivity, absenteeism and presenteeism and are costing employers billions of dollars annually.

Minimum mental health screening and substance use treatment are essential benefits mandated by the Affordable Care Act for both group and individual health plans. Mental health parity also requires parity of services provided for mental health treatment versus general medical treatment. Despite an expansion of benefits available the last several years, less than half of people living with mental health or substance use issues receive treatment.

This topic is designed to explore four different approaches employers can take to expand employee access to and use of mental health and substance use benefits. Specific implementation options will also be offered for implementing each of the four approaches.

By focusing on improvising employee awareness, access, assistance and accommodation, employers can ensure its employees suffering from mental illness and substance use issues can receive the care they need and increase their profits by lowering workforce associated costs.
