The July 2018 enhancements to the SRA Health Plan included the introduction of the Member Assistance Program (MAP). This is a program similar to the Employee and Family Assistance Programs you will have had while working. The MAP is a benefit under your Saskatchewan Retirees Association Health Plan – members and their dependants are eligible to receive MAP benefits.
The MAP delivers a variety of resources and professional services to help you live well. MAP is accessible on a confidential basis 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year.
Access a range of online tools and resources such as articles about specific health topics, e-learning courses, and more.
Over-the-phone services with supporting materials designed to allow users to take a proactive approach to managing everyday challenges. Some of the topics covered are nutritional coaching, smoking cessation, retirement and post-retirement planning, elder and family care, legal advisory, financial coaching, relationship solutions, and grief and loss.
Confidential counselling services to help members with personal challenges such as relationship or family concerns, anxiety, depression, addictions, grief, coping with health issues, etc.
The MAP included in your SRA Health Plan premiums so there are no added costs for accessing the services. GMS has engaged Homewood Health to provide these services. For services, either call 1-800-663-1142 or search for www.homeweb.ca and a trained counsellor will respond to your needs.
