Provident Insurance Selects BHS in Partnership with Responders 1st Call to Manage Their First Responder Assistance Program

BALTIMORE, MD., January 4, 2021 – BHS, in partnership with Responders 1st Call, is excited and proud to announce that of January 1, 2021 they are administering and managing the Provident Insurance First Responder Assistance Program.

The First Responder Assistance Program is a 24/7/365 helpline offering confidential in-the-moment support and resources for first responders after a traumatic incident. The program also assists first responders and their families for stress management, depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, family issues, legal and financial concerns, and childcare and eldercare needs.

The First Responder Assistance Program is included with the accident and health insurance coverage underwritten by AXIS Insurance Company and provided through Provident Insurance. The policy is available to both paid and volunteer firefighters and emergency medical responders in the U.S. and Canada.

Dawn Motovidlak, President and CEO of BHS, says, “First responders work in an incredibly stressful environment that exposes them to traumatic events nearly every day. Exposure to trauma can lead to behavioral health concerns that impact the effectiveness of these individuals. That’s why BHS provides first responders with access to timely and high-quality behavioral health resources to get the support they need to be at their best.”

Dr. Ann Hawkins, CEO and Chief Innovation Officer of Responders 1st Call stated. “We are proud to partner with BHS and provide in-the-moment behavioral health care as part of the First Responder Assistance Program.”
