I've had united healthcare since the beginning of 2012 and my co-pay was $35 for 2 years up until the start of 2014. It rose to $65 recently without any kind of notice or anything of the sort. I realize this is still extremely reduced in comparison to full price, but it doesn't change the fact that I still do pay for the insurance.

The discount cards were useless to me after the first year of being on suboxone as they stopped working at the pharmacy. I had apparently met the limit even though there was a new card every 12 months. Out of nowhere they started working again this year, which was great, but my new doctor doesn't ever write a 30 day supply. Instead he writes 28 days so to use the coupon I have to skip 2 days since the coupon is only valid every 30 days. It's extremely annoying to say the least.

Anyone else's co-pay ever goes up like this? I wonder if there's something I can do about it or not. Thanks in advance for any replies.

I don't have insurance so I don't know anything about that part. I use the pills and payed $96 for a 15 day supply. But was just thinking, couldn't you ask the doc to write it for 30 days and explain the coupon thing?

Thanks for your response.

I actually did tell him a while back and he said that it doesn't matter because the coupon worked once every calender month, which was completely wrong by the way. That doctor actually left that office (he was filling in while the main doc was sick) so I'm going to mention it to the regular one since he JUST got back like a week ago. Thanks
