For those who have been accepted into this program for assistance. How long does it normally take after you fill out the paperwork and turn everything in before you are approved? Does it take a long time?

And how do you get the paperwork to fill out? Can they fax it or do they have to mail it? There is NO
place online anywhere that you can download or print the form either

Does anyone know of any insurance that is fairly cheap and that pays for most of the suboxone? Since I am already on it, I guess it would be considered pre exsisting as well.

Hello wntpce, Have you checked out these sites from this link?

–Some manufacturers of buprenorphine products have launched patient assistance programs (PAP) to help low income patients afford their medication. Some patients qualify for FREE medication for up to a year. Each program have their own procedures, qualification criteria, restrictions and rules. Click to find details about the Suboxone Film PAP and the Zubsolv PAP.

Hi wntpce, here's a post from a few days ago with links to the free meds and med coupons. They each have instructions on how to fill them out and timelines.

It sounds like you used the Treatment Match system. Glad it worked so well for you.

Congratulations on starting your new life.

Since insurance rates vary from state to state, you'd be best off to check into your state's insurance exchange if they have one or the Federal site. healthcare.gov

You can also google health insurance in your state or find an insurance agent.

Since the healthcare law went into effect, pre-existing conditions aren't an issue. Just make sure you take the deductible into consideration, look on the formulary to see if the medication is covered and see what doctors take that insurance. You might even ask your doctor what insurance s/he takes, that could be a good starting point.

Hope this helps.

Nancy
