I’m sorry you haven’t received any replies, and I personally don’t know much about this issue. You will probably have to purchase private insurance, which can be very costly. Does your employer offer any insurance plans? Hopefully someone from Indiana will see this and have some more informed advice on what your options are.

U can try the Here To Help Program. Go to the Suboxone website and I think it'll give u more information on that. Also if u want to search it here, I think there's a phone number from one of our members that gets this assistance. I don't have insurance either and I REALLY need to check this out myself. It's worth a shot and ya never know til u try (I should definitely take that advice too).

Not having insurance is awful and private insurance, like Lilly said, is so incredibly expensive. Why can't we have universal health care here in the United States....... oh how I wish we did!

Anyone have prescription hope ?
I list my Indiana insurance. Because I make too much .
My doctor visit is 200, and my subs are 600,
But when I talked to my insurance company they referred me to prescription hope
They give you any amount of a prescription for 50 a month. No matter how much you make
Even if you take 30 or 60 subs a month . You just pay 50.
Now if you take more then one type of meds you ok pay 50 per med
. But for my Suboxone it is 600 and my novolin pens it's 300, but thru
Prescription hope it's only 100 a month . Anyone having insurance
Issue try it . Remember that this is only for medication. I still have to
Pay for my doctor visit.

I see people all the time stress over med price. This helped me out
Sooo much . Try it

Prescription Hope is also a good program, but it does have income limits. Each doctor can apply to have the drug company provide fee medication for the patient. Each doctor is limited to how many patients they can have in the program, and there are still income limits, but the income limit is higher than medicaid cutoff. Use goodrx.com to check local prices. Generic buprenorphine/naloxone at my local Costco is $190 for 60 8/2mg tablets. Check the prices at Mom and Pop pharmacies. They are generally willing to work with you and give you some of the best prices. Each of the branded buprenophine/naloxone medications have co-pay cards as well. Best price out there for suboxone film is about $8.16 a strip without the discount card. The Suboxone discount card can reduce your cost by $1.92 per film stip.
