Become an EAP Provider Join the First Choice Health Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Provider Network

Are you interested in growing your practice? Our EAP is looking for licensed behavioral health and counseling specialists to join First Choice Health.

Credentialing with our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a great way to build your practice and fill gaps in your schedule. Clients call us directly and we match them with a provider who best fits their needs. This process removes the burden from clients and supports our providers with a referral arm for their business.

Our EAP is convenient for providers-we offer minimal paperwork, quick reimbursement, and an EAP team that is easy to work with.

We provide referrals to clients for telehealth and/or in-person sessions-you'll get the freedom to accept or decline any referrals, and reimbursement for one no-show or late cancellation per client.

For additional information, review the Provider Manual, call us at 206-268-2340 or email us at [email protected].

Do you work with Psychiatrists?

We only credential with fully licensed Master and Doctoral level behavioral health providers. We do not work with any providers that could prescribe medication during EAP sessions.

What do I need in order to apply?

Our minimum requirements for providers are to have at least a master's level degree in a counseling related field, be a fully licensed behavioral health professional, and have Malpractice Liability Insurance Coverage with $1,000,000 per claim and $3,000,000 aggregate minimum.

What is your reimbursement rate?

Please reach out to us via email at [email protected], or call 206-268-2340 for information regarding reimbursement.

How many referrals can I expect?

We strive to match based on insurance for continuing care after EAP sessions, and provider's specialties and availability for both parties. Client usage differs from area to area. EAP providers have the freedom to accept/decline any referrals sent to them. If you haven't received any referrals please contact our team.

Is there a minimum number of clients I need to accept?

There is no minimum number of clients. We are rapidly growing and always looking to add new providers to our network to meet our clients needs. We are happy to work with providers who are only able to take a few clients. We always welcome the opportunity to connect our clients with a quality therapist.

What employers are you serving in the area?

We work closely with Northwest companies in industries such as Healthcare, Education, Unions/Trusts, Local Governments, Financial Services, Transportation, Emergency Services, and more.
