NY to end pre-authorization requirement for substance use disorder treatment

New health insurance reforms that will allow immediate access to inpatient treatment and medications for substance use disorders will go into effect in New York on Jan. 1, 2017, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement.

The reforms require insurers to end the prior authorization requirement for inpatient treatment of substance use disorders for as long as needed. In addition, insurers will be prohibited from requiring prior approval for emergency supplies of drug treatment medications.

The new coverage requirements apply to individual plans as well as small and large group plans regulated by the New York Department of Financial Services that will be issued or renewed Jan. 1, 2017.
