And if so, are there any programs to help cover the cost? I've been on Sub since 2005 and have gone through 4 insurance changes. They all covered it until this one. Normally, I've paid a $40-$60 co-pay. This one doesn't cover the films or the tablets! I went to get my films and they said it would be a little over $300!! I do have a $75 coupon from the makers of the new film, but it's unclear if that even takes it off all at once or not. I have called about getting a pre-auth, but they said it doesn't look good. Normally, it's not approved. What!? To make matters worse, I already picked up my previous fill and they ran it through my old insurance, which mistakenly covered it. Dumb lady! I'd given her my new insurance card!! So, now I will be billed for that $300. Now is such a tough financial time for us. Not the time for this to happen.
For some reason, my insurance wouldn't pay for the outpatient recovery center, but did pay for my subs. If you can get your doctor to write you a prescription for the generic of subutex, the sister drug so to speak, it will bring the price down to around $2.50 per pill. Ask your pharmacy if they will let you get partial refills of subs and if so, how many times. My pharmacy would let me do that, then they had to limit it to 6 partials per prescription for legal reasons, said they were getting checked by their powers that be, but I could do it up to 6.
im currently taking the 8mg subs but the pill, now ive had to pay out of pocket since the very first day and that was May the 12th 2009... i only get 30 at a time n for all of them its about 265$ so i hve to split them up into 5s for a week n try n make them last as long as possible... maybe u could try to hve ur pharm split them up so it wont be as much... jus a suggestion though hope it all works out for you... Stay Strong Ur Not Alone!!!
