i have read so many posts on here about saying the ins co wont cover the cost for suboxen. its soo freaking frustrating. it hard enough trying to get yourself well and then to have to worry if your ins co will pay is ridiculous. i wish people who say on here i have great ins, would say what ins they have. im sure it would be really helpful to many. i pray my ins doesn't deny me :(

I actually don't know if my insurance is good or not, because there are going to be changes in what they will cover starting 1/1/14. Also, say my United Healthcare plan is good. Well there are a bunch of different healthcare plans within United H. So it's hard to say that any one insurance company is good or bad, but people could answer your question by telling you their specific plan. Do you see what I mean?

I know that United Healthcare through Medicaid will only cover the cost of Suboxone if you are in a treatment program and even then for only a year. You can appeal and get a second year but after that you have to wait and relapse again and start treatment over in order to be covered again. Makes it hard for those of us who know that Suboxone is a lifelong maintenance tool against relapsing for good. I'd love to find a private insurance that will cover Suboxone and treatment for as long as one feels they need it instead of the insurance companies putting their own time limits on when you have to stop treatment. Such should be up to the individual and his/her doctor if you ask me.
