What is an EAP?

First Choice Health Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential service provided by companies to their employees and eligible family members. Our EAP program offers assessment and referral, clinical support, and crisis services for critical incidents, along with a wide range of tools and resources. We specialize in high-touch service and innovative techniques to provide comprehensive support to our clients and their organizations, whenever they need us.

Who can apply?

If you are a fully licensed masters or doctoral level behavioral health provider offering telehealth, in-person counseling, or both, we would love the opportunity to work with you.

We work with fully licensed behavioral health providers such as:

  • LCPC (Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor)
  • LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker)
  • LICSW (Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker)
  • LMFT (Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist)
  • LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor)
  • LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor)
  • Psychologist

Important Note: The titles of licenses differ across the country. If you are interested in joining but don't see your exact licensure above, please reach out to us via email at [email protected], or call us at 206-268-2340.

Do you work with Psychiatrists?

FCH EAP is for Assessment and Referral only. We do not work with any providers that can 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.

Are referrals for In-Person or Telehealth Sessions?

Both! Our EAP is welcome to providers seeking referrals for in-person and/or telehealth sessions. Our referral team will communicate with you on which type of session the client is looking for, and it is up to you on whether you accept or decline.

Do I have to have a specific platform for telehealth?

No. Providers offering telehealth can choose to provide telephonic or secure video counseling to EAP clients through their own secure, HIPAA-compliant software.

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?

Client usage differs from area to area and while we primarily work with employers in the Greater Northwest, we do have many clients throughout the country that request our services. Referrals are primarily matched based on a provider's specialties, insurance panels, and office hours to find the best fit for both the client and the provider's practice.  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 many companies in the Greater Northwest specializing in Healthcare, Education, Unions/Trusts, Local Governments, Financial Services, Transportation, Emergency Services, and more. Please reach out to us via email at [email protected], or call 206-268-2340 for more information.

We look forward to hearing from you! Here are what some of our current providers are saying about us: 

"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with First Choice Health EAP.  Your staff are pleasant, skilled, and responsive, and I really appreciate the option to decline referrals that aren't a good fit for my practice. I can't speak highly enough of your staff and of my experience in working with FCH EAP for the last five years."


"I have always had a good experience working with FCH EAP. The paperwork is reasonable and useful, and reimbursement is timely. Any time I have had questions, someone has been able to respond either via email or in a phone call. It has been a pleasure working with FCH EAP, and I recommend working with the EAP team!"


"I am very satisfied with FCH and the process and am pleased with the quick reimbursement turnaround."
