drug used to get off of opiates
Some states do cover it in the programs and some don't, you may be able to call or check online to see. I know my state doesn't but I think Michigan does, one of the girls in my group got hers free and she was from Michigan, I think. Anyway, if you are trying to get on it and happen to go to the doctor locator service on the suboxone homepage, write down ALL the doctors and call ALL of them. The induction fees and office visit fees vary greatly as do requirements by each doctor, most don't take any type of insurance, but some do, so that is why I say call ALL of them. Subutex, has a generic, and that is the sister drug to suboxone. Some Pharmacies will break the RX down and give you a partial refill, but can only do it so many times on one RX, so ask if that is possible also.
I'm in Alabama. My subox strips are covered by Medicare. But i can't find a doc that takes it for my visit. I am currently on the hunt. Because I'm paying $150 a visit. But my 60 strips a mth aren't costing but about $7. But i did at 1x pay $380 for a visit elsewhere, but quickly changed docs. I also use subox for pain management. Long term. Not for detox & it works wonderfully. My pain is almost completely eliminated. Hope this helps.
