One of the exceptional features of our health plans is the behavioral health coverage. All employees, and family members who reside in their household, are eligible for the Employee Assistance Program. This program provides up to five free visits on a variety of issues.

If you need further assistance and you are enrolled in one of Scottsdale's medical plans, you may have more face-to-face visits.

The number of visits you have may be subject to medical necessity. If you are on the Cigna OAP In-Network plan or Cigna OAP plan, each visit is a $10 co-payment for outpatient visits through the CIGNA network. If you are on the Cigna OAP + HSA plan, each visit is subject to the applicable deductible and then paid at 90% through the Cigna OAP network.
