NYSHIP-Covered Treatment

NYSHIP (New York State Health Insurance Plan), also known as the Empire Plan, was established in 1957 to offer affordable and top-notch medical services to New York State employees. With over 1.2 million beneficiaries, including employees, retired employees, and their families, NYSHIP Empire Plan provides comprehensive insurance coverage at both state and local government levels.

 Over the years, NYSHIP has expanded its services to encompass school districts and local government, becoming a prominent health insurance program in the U.S. Hundreds of local government agencies use NYSHIP as their preferred provider.

 As part of the Empire Plan, NYSHIP offers extensive coverage for the treatment of substance abuse, mirroring the attention given to other medical conditions at NYSHIP drug rehabs and NYSHIP mental health facilities. You can find further details about NYSHIP’s services and how to utilize your membership on their website. Additionally, you can access valuable information about health insurance benefits and resources online, or you can contact an NYSHIP representative directly through the number provided on your membership card.

Why Types of Addiction Treatment is Covered Under NYSHIP?

YSHIP offers comprehensive coverage for drug or alcohol rehab, similar to that offered by a standard Empire Plan. According to the specifics of your plan, you may have full or partial coverage for various rehab services that are deemed medically necessary for your recovery. These include:

  • Partial care services: Inpatient stays at NYSHIP drug treatment centers are fully covered. You are responsible for a 10% coinsurance of medical expenses, as long as this does not exceed your combined annual coinsurance. Benefits apply once you have exceeded the combined annual coinsurance. Contact us, and we will assess the extent of your NYSHIP coverage.
  • Outpatient treatment: NYSHIP addiction treatment programs often offer outpatient addiction treatment programs which are more flexibile and less structured. This form of treatment works well for those with stable home environments and mild or moderate addictions.
  • Family counseling program: Recognizing the impact of addiction on families, NYSHIP coverage extends to twenty sessions each year.
  • Prescription pills: Medications may be a component of medication-assisted treatment at NYSHIP drug rehab centers.
