My doctor does not accept any insurance. So I am sending the form in myself. I have blue cross blue shield of Minnesota. They want to know my date of illness. What I put down for date and what would the illness be, addiction? I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm just worn out.

This is just my guess here, but for illness, my response would be opiate dependence/addiction, & as for date of illness, I'd try to estimate the month and year you began abusing opiates, and going through withdrawal without them. I don't have insurance, but that was one of the questions asked on the form I filled out for my doctor, and that was the answer I put down. Those forms can be confusing. If in doubt though, ask your doctor.

On a side note, I deleted your other thread with the same name asking the identical question. One thread will get you plenty of responses, and they'll be easier for you to see all in one place. :)

There is a code number for "opiate addiction, in remission" but you'll have to call the doctor to find out what it is. If I had seen this post just an hour ago I would know the number. Just got back from my Suboxone doctor appt., and he puts the code on the script. It should be no problem for them to give you the code number/s.

If I were you, I'd be looking for another doctor who accepts insurance. So far I've found two, in two different states. It took me almost all day of phone calls so don't give up. More and more are making it part of their regular practice. Meaning, my Sub doctor is also my main family doctor.

Keep looking,

rule

I have the same issue with my doc not taking insurance. Which sucks because I've tried and tried (and tried) to find a different doc anywhere near me (actually, within an hour drive) that will take insurance to no avail. It's not an easy feat for some people in certain areas.

I need to try this whole submitting to insurance myself thing though. Is it difficult to do?? Has anyone been successful in recouping their money (or some of their money) back?
