MEMBER ASSISTANCE SERVICE
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
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
Drug and alcohol dependence
Stress related conditions
Difficulties in concentrating
Disciplinary issues relating to health
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—
