Covered Services

Full-time Academic and Staff employees and their household members are eligible for:

Accessing Care

  1. Obtaining IUEAP services starts with a phone call: 888-234-8327 or 317-962-2622.
  2. A qualified and caring EAP professional will make an initial assessment and help to determine how IUEAP may help.
  3. A referral may be made to either an EAP network-licensed clinician for face-to-face problem-solving visits or to a local agency or resource.
  4. If a problem requires long-term care or clinical services beyond the scope of IUEAP, a counselor will help identify appropriate resources, including referral to a mental health or substance abuse professional.

Provider and Plan Contributions

IUEAP benefits are provided through IU Health (Methodist Assistance Program). All fees are paid by the University. There is no cost to employees for IUEAP services.



24-hour Nurse Line

Summer is here and so are the health risks that come with outdoor activity—bug bites, dehydration, sunburns, poison ivy—to name a few. To obtain medical guidance on non-emergency health questions this summer and all year long, employees will want to add the 24-hour Nurse Line number to their mobile phone contact list: 866-895-5835.

Specially trained registered nurses assess situations and provide information and recommendations. Participation is voluntary and costs are paid by the university.

The 24-Hour Nurse Line does not replace a doctor's care and is not designed to address emergency situations. In an emergency, call 911.
