Caron Treatment Centers Expands Insurance Partnerships with Payers Committed to Recovery

Caron now accepts AmeriHealth New Jersey insurance

Wernersville, Pa. (April 16, 2019) - Caron Treatment Centers, one of the nation’s leading not-for-profit addiction and behavioral healthcare providers, announces that it is now an in-network substance use disorder treatment provider in the Regional Preferred Network offered by AmeriHealth HMO, Inc. and AmeriHealth Insurance Company of New Jersey (collectively, AmeriHealth New Jersey). This relationship expands the select circle of insurance providers with whom Caron has in-network relationships.

“Caron is committed to providing uncompromising addiction treatment for those who need it,” said Dr. Joseph Garbely, D.O., FASAM, Vice President of Medical Services and Medical Director for Caron Treatment Centers. “We believe in patient-centric care and that each patient’s specific medical needs should determine level of care and disease management plans. Caron has had extraordinary partners in this regard, partners who recognize the value of primary inpatient treatment to help those suffering from substance use disorder.”

“AmeriHealth New Jersey is proud to partner with Caron in providing our members with increased access to addiction treatment,” said Mike Munoz, market president for AmeriHealth New Jersey. “Countless families have been devastated by the opioid epidemic. Our hope is that members in need of treatment will feel encouraged to take advantage of the exceptional resources Caron has to offer.”

“At Caron, our multidisciplinary team, led by addiction medicine specialists, takes an innovative, outcomes-driven approach to substance use disorder treatment,” explains Garbely. “We focus on overall behavioral health, evidence-based medical interventions and brain health initiatives, as well as family education and support to lay the groundwork for recovery.”

In addition to AmeriHealth New Jersey, Caron also has in-network agreements with Independence Blue Cross in the Greater Philadelphia area for its commercial Keystone Health Plan East and Personal Choice® PPO plans. For those not covered by in-network insurance agreements, Caron offers financial assistance for those who qualify.
