Integrated Health Management System

Poudre School District is committed to supporting employees and promoting a healthy work/life balance in every way. As part of these efforts, PSD is excited to introduce an Integrated Health Management System (IHMS) combining all aspects of health and wellness into one approach.

 

 

 

 

The goals of this system are to:

With accessible, affordable care, the IHMS focuses on the whole person through coordination between medical providers, lifestyle support, wellness and mental health services.

  • Headaches
  • Select generic medications (at no cost to member for first prescription)

Hours
Monday through Friday: 7 AM to 7 PM

Extended evening and weekend hours allow PSD employees convenient access to the clinic in a centralized location.

4. Employee Assistance Services (EAS)

Poudre School District offers its employees and household family members Employee Assistance Services (EAS) to help cope with the demands and stresses of life.  The staff at EAS is available with problem-solving strategies and mental health counseling services to help employees solve personal issues and move forward in a positive, healthy manner.

EAS counseling services are confidential. It is not necessary to participate in the District’s benefits plan(s) to be eligible for EAS services.

All services provided by the EAS team are free of charge to District employees and their household family members. Each individual is allowed five sessions per problem, per plan year, to visit with an EAS counselor.

Types of problems that EAS can address:

  • Balancing work and life
  • Marriage and family issues
  • Job-related concerns
  • Change and transitions
  • Loss and grief

  • Stress
  • Chemical dependency

Treatment Planning  and Referrals
If employees and their family members are on a PSD health plan and they require more extended care, EAS is the connection to in-network benefits. EAS provides assessment, treatment planning and referrals to in-network providers.

Confidentiality is assured at EAS. All patients are protected by strict state and federal laws and regulations, as well as professional ethical standards for counselors. The EAS counselors may not release any details regarding patient discussions without prior written approval from the patient. State law requires reporting of child/elder abuse or neglect and certain situations of danger to self or others.  Confidentiality will be fully discussed at your first appointment.
