I just got approved for assistance from my doctor and the drug company that makes suboxone, It only took a day for them to ship my meds out and they are currently waiting for me to pick up at my doctors office. Has anyone been through this program or are on it right now? I am curious about the length of time allowed and if I will have to reapply at any point. I heard the program lasts for one year. I haven't been able to talk with my doctor yet so I am asking the next best group of people!

My doctor and nurse helped me to sign up for it as well, but the very same week I was accepted into the program my state GA-U came through so I was given a choice of which to pick to be on. Since GA-U also gives you medicaid and cash, which helps with bills and nephews/niece's birthday presents, (lol), I choice to go the GA-U route. But, if I were to have choosen the assistance program, (through the makers of Suboxone, right?), my nurse informed me that I would have had the medication paid for for a year. With GA-U it's six months, but the other benefits make up for that, though. Like I said in my intro post I will have to reapply sometime next month. Congrats on getting accepted into the assistance program. I hear that each suboxone-prescribing doctor is limited to only three patients for the patient assistant program.
