If you or a family member is coping with anxiety, depression, grief, substance use, an eating disorder, or other mental health need, your Adobe benefits can help.
Spring Health EAP
Spring Health employee assistance program (EAP)
When you’re struggling, you don’t have to go through it alone. The employee assistance program (EAP) through Spring Health is available at no cost to you. The EAP provides you and your family with free therapy sessions, mental wellbeing exercises, and work-life resources.
You don’t have to be enrolled in an Adobe medical plan to use the EAP, and all interactions with the EAP are confidential. Adobe does not know who has accessed EAP services.
What happens when you contact the EAP
Visit Spring Health to activate your benefits. After a brief assessment, you’ll be assigned a dedicated care navigator who will act as your single point of contact.
Your care navigator will recommend EAP resources or guide you to the appropriate EAP benefits, including 1:1 counseling or other treatment options.
You, your spouse or domestic partner, and your dependents age 6 and older each get 10 free sessions per calendar year (12 each beginning January 1, 2024). After that, sessions are covered according to the terms of your medical plan.
If you’re enrolled in an Aetna medical plan, your care navigator can help you find an in-network provider, which will save you money. Be sure to provide your insurance information to your care navigator, or upload it on the Spring Health platform by clicking on your name and then Settings.
Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect:
Your EAP benefits

Enrolling dependents in the EAP
You can set up therapy sessions online for dependents ages 6 and older by creating a Spring Health account for each dependent. You can then schedule a call with a care navigator for assistance, or you can search for a therapist on the website and book an appointment.
If you already have an account with Spring Health, simply sign in and add your dependents by going to the Things to Do section on your home screen.
Aetna mental health benefits
Aetna behavioral health services are covered according to your medical plan: After you meet your deductible, the plan pays 80% or 90% of the cost for in-network care, and 60% or 70% of recognized charges for out-of-network care.
If you find your own provider, remember that there could be a big difference in cost if you go out-of-network. You’ll have a higher deductible, and you’ll need to pay a higher percentage of the cost. Plus, if an out-of-network provider charges more than the usual, customary, and reasonable (UCR) maximum, you’ll be responsible for any amount over the UCR cost.
Aetna provides comprehensive coverage and a variety of ways to access care, including:
- Virtual care, or telehealth, which encompasses talking to someone by phone, video, chat, or text
- Outpatient care, such as talking to a therapist in person or participating in a program that doesn’t require overnight stays
- Inpatient care, which is when you stay at a facility to receive care
To learn more, visit the Aetna member website, and select Mental Health Support & Services under Member Resources. You can also review the Aetna Behavioral Health Resources [PDF] or Aetna Support for Inpatient Behavioral Health Care [PDF].
If you want to talk to someone by phone, video, chat, or text message, the following options are available to Aetna members. You can reach out to any of these partners directly.
Teladoc video sessions
You can use Teladoc to get support for anxiety, eating disorders, depression, family issues, and more. Teladoc sessions [PDF] are covered according to your Aetna medical plan—i.e., after you meet your deductible, the plan pays 80% or 90% of the cost:
- Psychiatrist (initial visit): $190 per session
- Psychiatrist (ongoing visit): $95 per session
- Psychologist, licensed clinical social worker, counselor, or therapist: $85 per session
Get started at Teladoc, or call 855-835-2362.
Brightline support for children and families
Brightline provides behavioral, speech, and language therapy and medication management for children 18 months to 17 years old. Brightline’s digital platform, Connect, provides on-the-go access to personalized content, group classes, interactive exercises, and coaching.
Brightline appointments are covered in-network through your Aetna medical plan, subject to your deductible and coinsurance. Brightline benefits are in addition to the 10 free counseling sessions offered as part of the Spring Health EAP for ages 6 and older.
AbleTo support program
AbleTo, an eight-week program tailored to your schedule and specific needs, connects you to support via phone or video. After you meet your annual deductible, your Aetna health plan pays 100% of the program cost.
AbleTo [PDF] has helped people overcome the stress related to many of life’s challenges, including:
- Grief and loss
- Depression, anxiety, or panic
- Caregiving (child, elder, or autism)
- Illness (e.g., diabetes, cancer, heart disease, digestive health)
- Alcohol or substance abuse
- Postpartum recovery
- Chronic pain
If you are interested in participating, tell your Aetna case manager (if you’re working with one), visit AbleTo, or call 844-422-5386. An AbleTo staff member can answer your questions and determine whether the program will meet your needs.
Additional virtual mental health options
Aetna is working to expand their provider network, but, because the network is growing so quickly, you may not find all providers through Aetna’s online search tools.
For the latest information on in-network virtual mental health providers, review the telemedicine services brochure [PDF]. It lists Aetna’s national and regional partner networks for:
- General counseling and psychiatry
- Specialized substance use treatment
- Specialized mental health care, including services for children or elders
The brochure includes phone numbers and website information, so you can reach out directly to providers that are available in your state.
If you prefer to see providers in person, you have access to:
- Face-to-face outpatient general counseling, psychology, and psychiatry visits
- Medication management support
- Outpatient counseling services focused on substance use issues
Log in to the Aetna website (or SSO) to search for doctors in the Aetna Choice POS II Network. In Utah, search the Utah Connected Network for 2023 and Aetna Extended Network for 2024. If you work with a Spring Health care navigator, be sure to ask for providers in the Aetna network, and give your insurance information to the provider.
If you or a covered dependent needs to stay in a facility to receive care, you have access to inpatient care [PDF] through high-quality behavioral health facilities, including:
- Detoxification centers
- Residential treatment
- Partial hospitalization
Log in to the Aetna website (or SSO) to search facilities in the Aetna Choice POS II Network. In Utah, search the Utah Connected Network for 2023 and Aetna Extended Network for 2024. Remember, your plan pays more when you use in-network providers, and they will work with Aetna to preapprove services.
If you need help finding the right network provider, contact an Aetna service advocate at 800-884-9565.
