There are times in all of our lives when we need a little help. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, our Cascade Centers, Inc. EAP can help employees and their families find answers and resolve personal problems.  Your use of our EAP is confidential and will not be disclosed to West Linn-Wilsonville School District. 

Face-to-Face Counseling Up to 6 annual visits per member.  Employees and family members are seen by an EAP counselor within 15 minutes or 15 miles in city area, 30 minutes or 30 miles in urban areas, or within the customary time and distance for medical services in rural areas.

Telephone Counseling.  When an employee contacts Cascade for an appointment their EAP Service Coordinators obtain general identifying information and asks the client to describe their concern. The employee is then matched with a specific counselor based on specialty and geographic location.

 COBRA - Continuation of Group Health Plan Coverage

Federal law requires most employers sponsoring group health plans to offer employees and their families the opportunity to elect a temporary extension of health coverage called "continuation coverage" or "COBRA coverage" in certain instances where coverage under the group health plan would otherwise end. There are also limited continuation rights for continuing your Healthcare FSA.

In addition, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) provides for a 65% subsidy of COBRA premiums for loss of coverage occurring between September 1, 2008 and December 31, 2009 due to the employee’s involuntary termination (unless for gross misconduct).  Learn more about your continuation rights under our medical/prescription/vision and dental plans, and the premium subsidy:
