When seeking treatment, it is critical to understand the details of your health insurance plan, rights and co-pays. You can expect the best drug & alcohol rehab treatment in New York with comprehensive health insurance - usually a PPO plan or similar, especially if you're able to contribute funds for private treatment. However, for everyone else, there are many affordable and even free drug and alcohol rehabilitation options in New York.
Know your insurance rights! If you or a loved one have experienced insurance obstacles related to treatment or need help filing an appeal for a denied claim, contact the CHAMP helpline by calling 888-614-5400. The CHAMP helpline operates Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM-4:00 PM.
State law further requires facilities funded by the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) to provide free addiction services for people who cannot pay for their treatment.
