AN ACT to amend the insurance law, in relation to insurance coverage for
  substance abuse disorder services

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Paragraph  31  of  subsection  (i) of section 3216 of the
insurance law, as added by chapter 41 of the laws of 2014, is amended to
read as follows:
  (31) (A) Every policy that provides medical, major medical or  similar
comprehensive-type  coverage  must  provide  outpatient coverage for the
diagnosis and treatment of substance use disorder, including detoxifica-
tion and rehabilitation services. Such coverage shall not  apply  finan-
cial  requirements  or treatment limitations to outpatient substance use
disorder benefits that are more restrictive than the predominant  finan-
cial requirements and treatment limitations applied to substantially all
medical  and  surgical  benefits  covered by the policy.   Further, such
coverage shall be provided consistent with the  federal  Paul  Wellstone
and  Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008
(29 U.S.C. S 1185a).
  (B) Coverage under this paragraph may be limited to facilities in  New
York  state  certified  by  the office of alcoholism and substance abuse
services or licensed by such office as outpatient clinics  or  medically
supervised  ambulatory substance abuse programs and, in other states, to
those which are accredited by the  joint  commission  as  alcoholism  or
chemical dependence substance abuse treatment programs.
  (C)  Coverage  provided  under this paragraph may be subject to annual
deductibles and co-insurance as deemed appropriate by the superintendent
and that are consistent with those imposed on other  benefits  within  a
given policy.
  (D)  A  policy  providing coverage for substance use disorder services
pursuant to this paragraph shall provide up to twenty outpatient  visits
per  policy  or  calendar  year  to  an individual who identifies him or
herself as a family member of a  person  suffering  from  substance  use

During Governor Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State address this month, he offered a wide variety of far-reaching proposals and initiatives that are certainly worthy of much consideration and debate in the weeks ahead. While the Governor’s proposals aim to address many important issues across the state – from poverty and the plight of small businesses, to improving infrastructure and community revitalization – we still must remain mindful of how the state is spending taxpayer money.

State Senator James Sanders Jr. (D-Rochdale Village) yesterday voted against a bill (S.3709A), which would cap New York City's property taxes at 2% and cost the city billions of dollars in revenue. The bill adds an unnecessary limit on property taxes, which are already governed by a number of existing caps. 

"The loss of funds caused by this newly proposed 2% restriction would likely force NYC agencies to severely cut programs," Sanders said. "Everyone is trying to be fiscally responsible, but we must do so in a fashion that does not adversely affect necessary services.”

LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Fire Captain Richard Trebilcock upon
the occasion of his designation for special recognition after 65 years
of dedicated service to the Chenango Fire Company

WHEREAS, The firefighters of New York State are renowned throughout the
Nation; their reputation is synonymous with excellence in the arduous
field of fire protection and prevention; and
WHEREAS, Since the early days of "teapot steamers," the volunteer
firefighter has been the cornerstone of our great Nation's efforts to
spare us from the ravages of fire; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is proud to commend Fire Captain Rich-
ard Trebilcock upon the occasion of his designation for special recogni-
tion after 65 years of dedicated service to the Chenango Fire Company;
and
WHEREAS, At the young age of 18, Richard Trebilcock joined the Chenan-
go Fire Department; today, he is the longest tenured member in company
history; and
WHEREAS, For over six decades, Fire Captain Richard Trebilcock has
enthusiastically responded to fires, accidents, storm damage, ambulance
calls and other emergencies within his community; and
WHEREAS, Now, at the age of 83, Fire Captain Richard Trebilcock has
not slowed down a bit, answering 141 calls in 2015; he continues to
drive fire trucks and leads the Fire Police; and
WHEREAS, Volunteer firefighters and fire departments not only provide
the critical service of fire protection but also engage in other activ-
ities of great benefit and importance to the communities they serve; and
WHEREAS, It takes a special dedication, a strong desire to help others
and a tireless sense of community to forsake precious time with family
and friends to respond to the signal that a neighbor is in need; Richard
Trebilcock is such a firefighter; throughout 65 years of devoted
service, this volunteer heroically performed, above and beyond the call
of duty, those responsibilities which define the task of fire
protection; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Fire Captain Richard Trebilcock for 65 years of distinguished
service to the Chenango Fire Company; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Fire Captain Richard Trebilcock.
