I have been waiting on my prior authorization since Thursday of last week. I was told today they denied it. I have been on this medicine a year, my doctor office is closed and no money to pay out of pocket. I'm stuck and don't know what to do now. Any advice?

Hi bd, welcome. When will your doctor's office be open again?

Can you see on your insurance company website where you can contest the denial? Are you totally out of Suboxone - if so, when was the last time you took some and how much did you take.

Sorry for all the questions.

Nancy

Or see if the insurance will authorize a generic form of buprenorphine?

Hi bd, this thread has discount cards for prescriptions - not limited to buprenorphine:
http://www.addictionsurvivors.org/vb...ad.php?t=12915

This link has ways to save. #2 has manufacturer discount cards that can be used both to help with copays or if the patient is paying cash. #3 has information for free med programs; but the patient has to be uninsured or not have prescription coverage to qualify.
