The value of being employed at UNO is not just measured by hourly or salaried pay. In fact, there is a wide range of benefits, services and programs offered by the University that make up a total compensation package for our faculty and staff.
Through the University of Nebraska system, benefits-eligible faculty and staff, as well as their dependents, have access to the Best Care Faculty/Employee Assistance Program - or FEAP - at no additional cost for up to five (5) sessions.
Those requiring on-going support can work with a Best Care counselor to develop a plan that meets their needs in a cost-effective way.
Why Use FEAP?
The most common reasons an individual may choose to seek assistance through a FEAP include:
- Marital/Relationship Issues
- Alcohol and Drug Abuse/Dependency
- Work / Life Balance
- Personal Wellness
- Family/Parenting Concerns
- Grief and Loss
- Mental Illness
- Financial Concerns

How to Use FEAP
Call Best Care to schedule a confidential, cost-free appointment:
When you contact the FEAP, a qualified Best Care staff member will speak with you to assess the nature of the problem and to identify the best course of action to be taken. In most instances, problems can be resolved within a number of confidential and private sessions with a Best Care Professional provided at their location.
If a referral to a community resource is necessary, the FEAP staff will refer you to the most appropriate resource available.
Your use of Best Care FEAP counseling is completely confidential. Information cannot be shared with anyone without your written permission, unless otherwise required by Law.
Best Care FEAP is just one of the many benefits provided by UNO to benefits-eligible faculty and staff. Make sure you stay informed, take advantage and, if needed, get support through the UNO Human Resources Benefits team, who can help you with any concerns you might have.
