Employee Assistance Plan

You and your eligible dependents are eligible for Employee Assistance Plan (EAP), which offers confidential, personal assessment and referral services through CIGNA Behavioral Health. The full cost of the program is paid for by Leidos.

For more information, download the Employee Assistance Plan.


 

Confidentiality

It's important that you and your household have access to confidential counseling and that your right to privacy is maintained. That's why your contact with CIGNA Behavioral Health — including counseling records and services — will be kept confidential, in accordance with federal and state laws.

CIGNA Behavioral Health will not share information about your counseling with Leidos or anyone else without your written permission. The only exception is when the life or safety of an individual is seriously threatened, or if disclosure is required by law.

For more information, contact CIGNA Behavioral Health directly at 800-852-7440 or visit CIGNA Behavioral Health and enter your access code "[Leidos]."


 

Accessing the EAP

The EAP is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You may access EAP benefits by contacting CIGNA Behavioral Health directly at 800-852-7440, or you can access services online at CIGNA Behavioral Health to obtain an approval number. You are not required to file a claim for EAP services.


 

Covered Benefits

You and your dependents are each eligible for up to five visits per presenting problem per calendar year at no charge. If you or a dependent require extended mental health/substance abuse treatment, you may be eligible for benefits under your medical plan.

EAP defines a "dependent" as any natural person (other than an employee) eligible to receive benefits under the Plan. In addition, with respect to EAP services, "dependent" shall also include any person residing with an employee on a full-time basis.
