 Post subject: January 1st filling Suboxone
PostPosted: Tue Jan 16, 2018 11:07 am 
Hi I tried to find this subject couldn't find anything. Has anyone had problems getting their Suboxone filled? I've heard a couple of people have problems with their dose being over the 90 mme however hopeful it's just beginning of the year problems. Perhaps people confused. Thank You, Dee

Not sure how much trouble other people with BCBS are having with getting Prior Authorization for Suboxone.

I recently changed not insurance companies but just the company that supplies the medical insurance. My Federal BCBS would approve a six month period for the Prior Authorization and that was no big deal for the staff at my doctors office. More work, yes, but still not too bad. It normally got approved the same day I was ...

 Post subject: In-Network Dr.(UHC) excludes Subox treatment co-pay
PostPosted: Mon Sep 18, 2017 8:26 pm 
Hi. I'm Fed up with greedy doctors taking advantage of the Insured patients coming in for Suboxone treatment. I live in Orlando, Florida and I drive an hour and 15 minutes to New Smyrna Bch. , Florida to get treatment and prescriptions of Suboxone. The price has steadily risen from $125 to $175 over the years. At one point my doctor gave me great news. He was becoming an in-network physician with United Health Care. ...

 Post subject: Opus Health Savings Card Issues
PostPosted: Sun Sep 17, 2017 2:47 pm 
This is the manufacturer savings card that reduces your copay to $25. I've been using it for 5 years and never had an issue up until this month. They would only let me take 30 doses instead of the 60 I usually get. 15 days later When it was time to get the rest of my prescription they said I wasn't due for another 10 days. It makes no sense because this card was working ...

 Post subject: Suboxone Patient Assistance Program, Anyone on it?
PostPosted: Fri Sep 15, 2017 7:52 pm 
As of Tuesday this week I applied for the Suboxone patient assistance program because I no longer have any insurance or way to pay for my medicine. I am truly hoping that they accept me and send me a pharmacy card to pay for my meds. I am just wondering if anyone else is on the program and how long it took for you to be accepted or denied? It has been 3 days since ...

 Post subject: Envision RX drops suboxone/prior auth denied/appeal denied
PostPosted: Sun Sep 10, 2017 3:06 pm 
Envision RX has unlisted suboxone from their "covered meds" list and hit me with a prior auth on the Labor Day weekend. My doctor submitted the prior auth form the following Tuesday and then contacted me Wed to say that the insurance denied the prior auth. The reason?! They claim that my doctor is treating more than 275 patients for opiate dependance although they haven't proven in any way that they have proof of this. ...

 Post subject: Has anyone been reimbursed by Highmark for Sub Medical Claim
PostPosted: Sat Jul 01, 2017 2:45 pm 
I've since switched to a regular medical dr who prescribes. I pay $30 co-pay for a specialist visit and $25 for suboxone prescription. I was paying $200/mo at a clinic so that's what i'm trying to get reimbursed for.
I was told by highmark before I even started treatment to file a major medical claim to get reimbursed.
Well, it took them 7 months to finally get all the info they needed from me to ...

 Post subject: Newly withdrawing. Any advice?
PostPosted: Wed Dec 14, 2016 10:31 pm 
I'm down to an expired as of 9/16 8.2 mg dose cut into 1/48th, which I think is about .2mg and have withdrawals. I take it twice a day. Does it become less effective opened for so long? I smell everything and of course am cold and have nausea and tachycardia. Frustrating perspiring where i don't want it. No appetite and oddly want HOT spicy stuff when I do. I don't know when to quit ...

PostPosted: Wed Oct 26, 2016 10:18 pm

'The policy change will apply nationally, said Schneiderman, who has been pushing for easier access to treatments for the estimated 2.2 million Americans who need treatment for abuse of heroin or prescription painkillers.'
