Does anyone else have this problem?I used to be in a program always had to pay cash and had heard from a co-worker that my ins would cover the films not the strips.I just found out that's not the case today when I started back with a new program/office that prescribes the films only and I still had tp pay.I believe I called once before and they told me they just wont cover this medication but couldn't tell me why.i assume they believe its not a medical necessity.Wich is BS IMO cause you can say that about ANYTHING that wont keep you alive.Pain medication isn't a medical necessity for a broken leg but you really wouldn't want to go without it.Anyway does anyone have info on coupons or pharmacy savings?Or really any info/ideas of how to get around this or save money...I have really good ins and am apprectaive of it but they are dicks when it comes to this....

this is exactly what I am worried about! My apt is on wed to start suboxen and I keep reading how people are having problems w/ their ins paying or it!! Y said u gave good ins, if u don't mind I would really like to know what ins co u have?? I m just so worried I am going to have this problem. Its difficult enough trying to get better and then to have to worry about what and what not the ins co will cover is freaking ridiculous!
If you go on needymeds.com or suboxone.com you will find a discount savings card for $50 a month for the rx.
Hope this helps you :)

thanks ill check it out my ins is diff. its a well known company but thru my job as provider and there the ones who don't cover it.So it maybe diff for you.You could call your ins ahead of time.Some place want pre-authorization where your doctor/prescriber will have to call them.good luck

You need to have your buprenorphine provider contact your insurance company for a PRIOR AUTHORIZATION for whichever version of buprenorphine (Suboxone/Zubsolv/Buprenorphine HCL) is preferred by your insurance provider, this may have to be done by your prescriber every six months, it varies. Talk to your prescriber about this, I'm fairly certain it's the issue and will save you a lot on the cost of the medication itself. Good luck!

Hey Twin cities, I live an hour north of you on 94. ANyways thought I would add that my blue cross blue shield insurance works with a 0$ copay coupon card I got through my treatment facility where my Dr prescribed it. Every month when I picked up my 8mg or 2mg strips of Subs it wouldn't cost me a penny, I'd get it for free! Walgreens staff were always busy and seemed like they didn't like their jobs or were condescending because they refused it a few times but ive always talked them into doing it. Im under Fed. Ins. so maybe that's a factor. Hope you can find some help

I have medicaid and my (wonderful) doctor, after talking to me about suboxone and together we decided it would be a good idea for me to try; she told me that it may take up to 2 weeks from dropping the RX at the pharmacy to getting it filled due to it needing to be preauthorized with medicaid. So she prescribed me enough hydrocodone to keep me out of WD's for 2 weeks and told me to call in when the script was ready to be picked up. It took 1 week for the pharmacy to call me to say it was ready. I called her, made an appt' for a couple days later for the induction. picked up the RX on my way there.

So, maybe discuss with your doctor if your insurance will require pre-auth to have it filled and have some sort of plan for any time in between so you aren't in withdrawals.

Well that all sepemds on a few things. First wnere you get them. Meaning witch phar you go to. It does make a difference. Ive found Walmart to be cheapest. I pay 274.00 for 42 films. That is 7.25 a piece. Also with the 50 dollar discount card from the drug maker Reckett.
The generics are all cheaper too. Subutwx being the cheapest. But talking a dr into giving that out is hard.
Also there are 3 new bupe/nelox generics. I know the zubzlov has a 75 sollar discount card..
Best of luck geting this lifesaving med baxk into your hands..razor....
