MEMBER ASSISTANCE SERVICE
AVAILABLE


If you need assistance with stress, mental health problems or substance abuse that is affecting your job performance—or if anyone in your family is experiencing similar problems---help is available from Healthcare Assistance with Member Support
(HCAMS).

Some of you may be familiar with the Employee Advisory Service (EAS) which employers use to assist employees with the types of problems described above. HCAMS is a superior alternative because it acts as your advocate, which is something that EAS cannot do. As a union-friendly and employee-friendly organization, it will assist you in obtaining the health care you need, while protecting your rights on the job.

HCAMS is your personal referral service. It will counsel you and refer you to competent professionals that will accept your insurance. Should you miss time at work, it will further assist you in avoiding discipline and navigating fitness for duty exams.

You are encouraged to visit their web site by clicking here - www.hcams.us - or call 1-888-828-7826 if you have one or more of the following problems:

  • Drug and alcohol dependence

  • Stress related conditions

  • Sleeplessness

  • Uncontrollable anger

  • Difficulties in concentrating

  • Disciplinary issues relating to health

  • Adolescent problems

  • Other relationship issues

In sum, HCAMS can help you deal with a myriad of problems—at the work place and at home. It can help you access treatment, obtain medical documentation, avoid disciplinary problems and to advocate for your right to health benefits, disability, family leave or sick leave.

Call for a confidential consultation. Ask for Terry Livorsi.

THIS IS A FREE SERVICE AVAILABLE TO THE ENTIRE BARGAINING UNIT— and yet another good reason to join the UNION..
