My girlfriend and I have been on Buprenorphine for about 6 years now perhaps even a little bit longer. We live in Ohio and for the longest time my girlfriends Caresource insurance paid for her Buprenorphine doctors visit. Her Caresource does pay for the medication itself. It is the doctors visits that we are now facing problems with. 60 dollars every two weeks is a lot of money and short to going under we do not see a way to get off of the Buprenorphine we missed our best opportunity years ago.

What is going on in Ohio? There are now very few doctors that even take her insurance. She used to go to Springfield Ohio, however that office closed for Buprenorphine. We are now facing a serious dilemma which could lead us back to relapse after 6 years of sobriety. We currently go to Woodman in Dayton. We need to find a Buprenorphine Doctor who takes Caresource insurance. However it looks like no other doctors around Dayton Ohio take Caresource. What do we do in this situation?

I am sorry that the cost of your doctor visits have gone up, however, an increased cost of $60 every two weeks seems minimal in comparison to relapsing. Would relapsing really cost less than $60 every two weeks? Is the increased cost $60 every two weeks the total for both of you? Or will it really be $120 every two weeks for both of your doctor visits? Either way, I hope and pray that you find the resources to continue your buprenorphine treatment.

I didn't think people were supposed to be on Sub for that long (six years..) I've been on it almost 2 and I feel a bit of pressure to ween off... I certainly don't WANT to get off of it, but I agree with you, the price is a little crazy. I pay $60 every two weeks, too, and then the sub film costs around $300 a month..( I don't have any insurance) Shoot, that's enough to rent a small apartment every month or make a car payment or something...

About the insurance: can't you switch to another provider? Molina, maybe? Medicaid? I would call your case worker at the welfare place and ask about different providers. Good Luck.

(BTW, I found this forum by googling "Springfield OH suboxone doctor"... I was seeing a doc here in Springfield, too, until about 2 months ago when the doc quit, now I have to drive Dayton (coincidentally I see Dr Singh on Woodman, too... small world, if that's the same Woodman Dr you're talking about..)

have you tried to file the claim yourself to see if you can get a refund? i've run into a few docs in texas when i had insurance who just didn't wanna deal with filing... good luck.
