Your sub is non-formulary on your insurance? So if I may ask, what is your copay then on non-formulary meds? My suboxone goes through as a name brand and it's $20 for me. My non-formulry meds, on the other hand, cost me $40. Again, I'll consider myself lucky that my insurance covers as much of it as they do.

Oh and I always check the retail price of my sub before i toss the bag. At Walgreen's, the most recent price for an 8/2mg sub tablet is nearly $10 per pill! OUCH....I know w/o my insurance that I couldn't come close to being able to afford this long term treatment. I have no clue where I'd be right now without it.

Don't forget about the coupon they offer to take $45 off the top. My co-pay is $40 for name brand so basically I pay nothing for the films.

There wasn't a coupon back when there was only the pill form was there? If so, I missed it.

Thank God for insurance.

That crappy film is just a scam to make people pay the ridiculous cost for brand name Suboxone.

Do you have this attitude in every post that you respond to..or is it just certain people..

Sounds pretty judgmental to say that about film..like you're dissing someone that takes the film ...

If it's the scam you say it is, then I'm going to continue to be a party to it..because I ASKED MY DOCTOR to switch me. He told me he would give me the pill form back if I wanted..but I prefer the "crappy film" instead.

I'll leave the scam part that you swear by to be between Caremark/CVS (my insurance carrier via BCBS of AL) and Reckitt Benckiser. All I'm worried with is the $80 a month I slap down for #any number over $79 worth at $1.36 each.

After using Suboxone strips (2mg) for over a year, I was switched to the Hi Tech generic buprenorphine. I started experiencing serious adverse side effects. I have switched back to the Suboxone strips. I recently filed an FDA Medwatch report for the Hi Tech brand.

Here is my original post: http://www.suboxforum.com/one-week-taking-tech-generic-subutex-t7538.html#p102475

On my old insurance, Suboxone films were free. My copay was $50 but received $50 off with the coupon card.

The same dose of Suboxone out of pocket (90 2mg films) cost me $266 and is on my plans excluded list (they will not cover Suboxone film period). My plan does cover generic Subutex but I haven't met my deductible and 30 8mg pills cost me $160. It's bad enough paying $125 out of pocket for a visit, insurance or not but the added cost of my meds is really starting to hurt!

I feel like I'm getting ripped off? 90 2mg strips of Suboxone cost me $260 out of pocket and 30 8mg generic Subutex ran me $160... I had expected the generic to be much cheaper, especially with a 30 count vs 90?

I completely understand how frustrating it is that for most people sub treatment is expensive. I have no insurance. I pay $350 a month, been there four years, and pay $9 a strip and I get 28 a month. The only break I get is using the suboxone coupon from their websites. I could go crazy if I wanted to think of what all I could be doing with that money that I spend on my treatment, but I can't think like that. I have to remember what my life was like before this treatment and where I'd be right now without it. I was miserable and my family was suffering from my addiction, I had zero peace of mind. Waking up today is a peaceful blessing with a happy family and just knowing my children are happy....it's priceless. That's how u have to look at things sometimes because it can drive ya crazy.

There's not much we can do about costs and insurance companies, but remembering how bad it used to be compared to now can maybe motivate u to let go of the negatives a little bit. That's what makes me feel better, because the amount of money I've spent for four years adds up to a hefty chunk of change.

Hi all, I am so fortunate to have my insurance cover my suboxone. But, it never occurred to me to use the coupon for my 20 dollar copay! I am going to see if Rite aid will accept it!
