WELL Health Honors World Mental Health Day and Celebrates New, Robust Mental Health Employee Benefits Offerings
New Benefits Support Employees’ Mental Health & Well-Being, Family Planning and More
Did you know: more than 47 million Americans experience a mental illness, but less than half receive treatment1? There are many reasons for that, but one underlying factor is access to affordable mental health care.
In honor of World Mental Health Day and to support the efforts of raising awareness of the importance of mental health, WELL Health is celebrating their recently-launched new benefits offerings, which include access to groundbreaking mental health and family-planning support.
Groundbreaking Access to Mental Health Support & Career Coaching
Employee mental health and wellness is a top priority at WELL Health. Employees on WELL Health’s Cigna plan can enjoy a $0 co-pay for in-network mental health visits.
In addition, WELL Health’s new benefits include free, unlimited access to Ginger, the world’s first integrated mental healthcare system2. Ginger offers confidential mental healthcare through behavioral health coaching via text-based chats, self-guided learning activities and content, and, if needed, video-based therapy and psychiatry. Support is available anytime, anywhere, for a variety of mental health challenges — all from the privacy of a smartphone.
Ginger’s behavioral health coaches offer personalized support to help overcome life challenges and reach goals. Coaches can help with any issue employees struggle with such as stress, anxiety, depression, issues with work, relationships, sleep, and more.
Fertility Benefits for Family Planning
WELL Health’s new benefits also aim to alleviate the stress of family planning, supporting those employees longing to start a family, today or in the future. Knowing fertility treatments can be costly, WELL Health offers a $10,000 lifetime credit for a variety of diagnostic and treatment services, for each individual on a plan.
Inevitably, fertility benefits can support all employee types, no matter their relationship status, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or geography. These benefits encourage people to seek clinical support, ultimately providing better care that leads to healthier outcomes.
A Personalized Concierge Experience for Easy Health Plan Navigation
To make navigating these benefits as easy as possible, each enrolled employee receives a concierge experience with Cigna’s One Guide. This service helps guide users through the complexities of the healthcare system, and can help them avoid costly missteps. Cigna One Guide service provides private, personalized assistance to help with activities such as:
- Choosing the best healthcare plan for you and your family
- Resolving healthcare issues
- Saving time and money
- Getting the most out of a plan
- Finding in-network hospitals and health care providers
- Getting cost estimates to avoid surprise expenses
- Understanding bills
Committing More to Employees
Keeping affordability top of mind as much as health and wellness, WELL Health offers five plan options to employees, with one of the options – a mid-level PPO plan – available at no monthly cost to employees.
All employees, regardless of which package they choose, will enjoy lower monthly costs for great, well-rounded benefits, a commitment WELL Health has made to ensure no one has to choose between their health and their paycheck.
Promoting Health and Happiness – WELL Health’s Goal
WELL™ Health knows that great benefits don’t just matter to employees – they are essential. Promoting healthy lifestyles and reducing illness is key to our employees’ success — personally and professionally — and it’s WELL Health’s goal to provide the options for support our employees need. ♥
