Health Insurance & Benefits

Private Insurance Plans

St. Christopher’s Inn accepts most major insurance plans. If program costs are to be covered through private insurance, the outpatient benefit portion of your plan will be used to cover these costs.

New York State Medicaid

In many instances the Client Benefits Services Office at St. Christopher’s Inn can assist you with the Medicaid application process for financially eligible applicants. All applicants will need to provide a Photo ID, Birth Certificate and Social Security Card upon admission. Some Medicaid recipients may be required to obtain prior approval for admission from The Department of Social Services. Our Admissions Department will notify you if this will be needed.

For all questions regarding payment for Substance Abuse Treatment, please contact the Admissions Office at 845.335.1020 or
