While paying for addiction treatment is a primary concern for many people in obtaining professional help, your health insurance coverage may help. While some health insurance providers only pay for a portion of treatment costs, other insurers will pay for the entire cost. The best way to get detailed information about your coverage is by contacting your insurance provider directly.
If you have already chosen your New Jersey treatment center, you can ask their staff to contact the insurance company for you. They will know which questions to ask to obtain the necessary information about your coverage details.

This can help you to more accurately determine your out of pocket costs. In addition to private insurance, you may be covered through any of the following types of health insurance:
- State-financed insurance
