Many mental health programs listed above are free to New Yorkers, no matter your insurance coverage or immigration status.
For programs that require payment, New York State has issued a rule.

Insurance companies must waive the following for in-network telehealth visits, including mental health services:

  • Deductibles. Amount you pay for covered health care services before your plan starts to pay.
  • Copayments (copays). Set amount you pay for a covered health care service after you’ve paid your deductible.
  • Coinsurance. Percentage of costs for a covered health care service. You pay the coinsurance after you’ve paid your deductible.
