15 Self Referral Worksite employee or dependant makes initial contact by calling Life s Solutions EAP at: Tip: Since there are many clients under the umbrella of ADP, members should identify themselves as an ADP TotalSource employee or dependant EAP Case Mgr. will assess the type of need and if immediate crisis intervention is required. Whenever possible, the member will be given several local network providers to choose from for local face to face counseling.
16 Self Referral (cont.) Member will choose the local EAP in-network provider they wish to use*. Member will then be given an authorization number to give to the provider for billing purposes. Member is authorized for up to three FREE visits per calendar year. *TIP: When the member is choosing an EAP in-network provider, we suggest they also review their medical insurance providers and choose a provider that participates in both networks.

17 Suggested Referral Supervisors should keep a small supply of EAP wallet cards and brochures handy may be obtained through your ADP TotalSource HR Business Partner.

Supervisor/HR should document discussions and concerns with employee per employer policies. Supervisor/HR should contact ADP TotalSource HR Business Partner for guidance as appropriate to: 1. Review all facts of case 2. Review all pertinent policies and procedures 3. Determine whether to continue investigation, discipline, terminate or make a Suggested or Mandatory Referral to EAP

A very specific Mandatory Referral Agreement and Release of Information is presented to the employee for signature. This form can be located in the FormSource tab within My TotalSource.
