Hi , I'm new here and just became disabled and I will be on medicare starting Feb 1st. I still have to pick an insurance plan to fill in where medicare stops. Ive been on suboxone for a while and had no problems with filling prescriptions , but now that medicare is kicking in I am completely lost on 1) which plan to pick ppo or HMO etc. 2) Am I now unable to use suboxone coupon with medicare? If anyone can stear me in the right direction of information about medicare and getting my suboxone prescriptions covered , I would appreciate it. I have a doctor I go to on Monday and plan to ask him some questions as well.
Anyone on medicare , please chime in , I need some help !! Thanks

Hi Newman1, welcome. I don't know much about Medicare plans, so I'm not of much help there. But I was wondering if you could ask your pharmacist what s/he thinks about the plans you can choose. That might be another person in addition to your doctor, especially since the pharmacist will be filling your prescription. Also look on the different formularies for the plans. You want to make sure that the Suboxone and another meds you take are covered.

For the Suboxone Film, you won't be able to use their card - this is true with a lot of copay cards, so read the fine print to make sure: "You are not eligible if your prescriptions are paid by any state or federally funded health insurance, including, but not limited to Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, VA, DOD, TriCare, or where prohibited by law."

Sorry I can't be of more help.
