A Breakthrough Approach to Employee Mental Health Benefits
Hunt Valley, Maryland— January 15 2021—Employees are facing mounting stress with the pandemic and remote work, putting the need for behavioral and mental health benefits in the spotlight. In response to this growing need, ArmadaCare is introducing the WellPak insurance plan, a unique suite of indemnity insurance benefits that addresses employees’ coverage needs and access to mental health and well-being services.
“Investing in mental wellness for employees isn’t just the right thing for employers to do as corporate citizens, it’s also in the best interest of the business,” said Charlotta Winslow-Jenkins, ArmadaCare’s Chief Marketing & Product Development Officer. “Employee well-being and performance are strongly interconnected. Left unchecked, heightened periods of stress and burnout can cause absenteeism and presenteeism, ultimately affecting the bottom line.”
A fully insured, employer-sponsored supplemental health insurance plan, the WellPak insurance plan combines coverage for doctor visits, prescriptions, and wellness treatments, with boosted coverage for a range of easy-to-access mental health and well-being support services. In addition to offering coverage for treatment, the WellPak insurance plan can help eliminate barriers employees face in finding and accessing effective care through its Connect & Thrive services, which are made possible through a partnership with BHS, a national provider of well-being programs and services.
The Connect & Thrive services provide enrolled employees with guidance and access to behavioral health and well-being support to best meet their individual needs. It includes a clinically validated assessment to determine the type of services needed, whether its coaching to help alleviate everyday stressors or counseling to deal with a mental health condition. Employees receive customized navigation to the right level of care.
“We’re excited to partner with ArmadaCare to help more employees who are struggling, regardless of where they are on the mental health continuum,” said Mark Schubert, Managing Director of Business Development at BHS. “We can help employees find the right level of mental health support, whether that’s coaching, navigation to a therapist or counselor, even in-patient treatment.”
WellPak insurance helps eliminate the barriers and stigma employees face when seeking mental health care, with improved insurance coverage and navigation to proper care. When support for employee well-being is made an organizational priority, companies can increase employee satisfaction, decrease absenteeism and presenteeism, and increase employee engagement and productivity. Employers across the country realize that focusing on wellness in the workplace is the right thing to do for their employees and their company.
