How does the plan work?

The plan provides counselling sessions related to each concern in any given year at no cost to you or your insured Dependent. Should longer-term or specialized counselling be required, HHI Ontario counsellors will make a referral to the appropriate professionals and agencies in the community. If referrals are required, attempts will be made to utilize the services of government agencies so the cost will be covered under the Provincial Health Plan or your Extended Health Care benefits. However, if fees are incurred for referral services, they become your responsibility.

Additional Information

A brochure describing the Member Assistance Plan in further detail and a fridge magnet are available by contacting the Administrative Agent.

Access to Services

Please call the Intake Coordinator toll-free at 1-866-462-8047. You will be asked for your name and address, and HHI will then look for a counsellor who is in your area and who would be a good fit to help address your specific concerns.

When HHI has confirmed that the counsellor is available, they will call you with their name and number and you can then call to schedule a time that works best for you.
