Hello Colleagues!!!

We are doing a brief survey related to the costs of EAP (Counseling)
Services.

We are looking at costs for actual employee usage vs. paying a flat rate
each month based upon employee population.

If your City provides an EAP program for your employees, and you pay per
employee actual use (vs. flat rate per employee population) would you
please let us know your provider information and costs for this service.

Thank you!
