Mental health and Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Stryker's mental health and Employee Assistance Program provides you and members of your household with professional confidential help in dealing with everyday issues. The program is administered by Lyra.
Services include:
  • Professional confidential counseling, customized searches, self-guided care programs and referrals for life or family problems, work problems or emotional or substance abuse disorders;
  • Up to ten short-term counseling or coaching sessions (per calendar year) available to you and members of your household at no cost;
  • Child care and elder care research and referral services.
You and household family members are eligible for Lyra services on your date of hire. Enrollment in Stryker's medical plan is not required. The issues you bring to Lyra are held in strict confidence and are not shared with anyone at Stryker. All Lyra services are available by calling (833) 511-0159 seven days a week, 24 hours per day.

For UHC plan participants under a Stryker-sponsored plan
If your counseling or coaching sessions go beyond the annual limit and you participate in a UHC plan sponsored by Stryker, you can continue using the same Lyra provider using your medical plan's mental health benefits. Keep in mind that each medical plan has its own deductibles, coinsurance, copayments, annual maximum and limits on inpatient and outpatient care, including number of visits/days of coverage. You will be responsible for the member cost share of these visits.
In addition, UHC plan participants have access to medication management services through Lyra. This includes a 90-minute consultation with a physician to discuss current medication or get insight into medications recommended by other providers. These visits are billed through the health plan and are subject to member cost share (deductibles, coinsurance and/or co-pays based on which plan you participate in).
