Look to the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for Help When You Need It

We’ve all experienced a personal or work concern at some point in our work life, and we know that how we handle the situation affects how we function at work and home.

You don’t have to deal with the problem alone. The University has contracted with Sand Creek to provide free, confidential assessment, short-term counseling, referral, and follow-up for you and your eligible family members.

EAP is available to all benefits-eligible employees on all system campuses. Contact Sand Creek by phone or online to start the process.

Walk-in Clinics: A Convenient Alternative

Your back-to-school checklist may include getting your children up-to-date on their immunizations.

Be sure to ask your child’s doctor which vaccines are necessary. If you happen to know which vaccines your child needs and you can't see your doctor as soon as you would like, a convenient alternative is to visit a retail walk-in clinic.

The convenience care/walk-in clinics do not require appointments or referrals, and there is no copayment for immunizations. Just show the clinician your UPlan card to verify that you are an active participant in one of the UPlan medical options.

Benefits Spotlight: Health Care That's Just a Call or Click Away

Your medical plan coverage includes three bonus services – a nurse line, walk-in clinics, and virtual care – that makes it easier for you to get care outside of regular office hours.
