Company collaborates with Marvin to provide access to specialized mental health support for health care professionals

May 29, 2024 09:02 AM Eastern Daylight Time–HARTFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Hartford, a leading provider of employee benefits and leave management, is collaborating with Marvin Behavioral Health1 to provide The Hartford’s life and disability insurance customers in the health care industry with access to mental health resources designed to meet the unique needs of health care professionals. This effort is part of The Hartford’s continued focus on providing its customers of all sizes in the health care industry with specialized insurance coverage and dedicated support teams.

“Health care professionals deliver compassionate care every day and our employer customers in this industry are looking for a benefits experience that provides exceptional care for their own employees, including additional support for mental health,” said John Gallant, head of product and underwriting for Group Benefits at The Hartford. “Health care employees often face difficult situations in the course of their work, such as losing a patient, delivering hard news to a patient or family, or other traumatic experiences that may affect their mental health. We believe it is critical to connect our customers with Marvin to help them holistically support the well-being of their employees.”

The Hartford’s 2024 Future of Benefits study shows that many health care workers in the U.S. are in need of mental health support:

  • 64% of health care workers are experiencing some level of burnout at work, with 26% saying they always/often experience burnout
  • 21% say their mental health always or almost always negatively impacts their productivity at work
  • 29% struggle with depression or anxiety at least a few times per week
  • 63% believe their company should be providing more mental health tools and resources

Marvin works exclusively with health systems, medical groups, residency programs, and health care employers to connect their employees with quality mental health care. Their services include:

  • Licensed therapists trained to work specifically with health care workers
  • 24/7 video call availability to meet scheduling needs
  • Sessions covered by most commercial insurance plans
  • No limit to the number of therapy sessions
  • Employer insight into key clinical measurements and de-identified demographics to improve workplace-related drivers of mental health concerns
