What is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a brand name for a medication that health care providers commonly prescribe to help people who want to stop using opioids. Suboxone is a combination of two different medicines: buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist, which means that it binds to cells in the body in a way that blocks opioid cravings but does not produce impairment or intoxication when taken as prescribed. Naloxone is a medicine that makes it even less likely that individuals will misuse the medication by making it almost impossible to produce intoxication. Naloxone does not have any effect on buprenorphine’s ability to block cravings, but it does prevent people from becoming intoxicated from the buprenorphine. When taken together in a medication like Suboxone, they are a very safe and effective way to help people stop taking opioids and eliminate cravings. They do not produce intoxication in most people.

Suboxone is a brand name, and there are also other brand names for buprenorphine/naloxone. A couple of examples of other brand names for the combination of buprenorphine and naloxone are Zubsolv and Bunavail. There are also generic formulations that contain the same active ingredients but might be more accessible depending on insurance coverage. Some of these are in pill form, and others are sublingual strips that dissolve in the mouth.

Does Medicaid Cover Telehealth Treatment?

Right now, almost all states where Medicaid covers buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) also has Medicaid coverage for telehealth treatment. The federal government now allows doctors to prescribe buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) via telehealth with no in-person visits, but we are currently waiting for guidance from the federal government about whether providers will be able to continue prescribing Suboxone via telehealth visits after the COVID-19 emergency is declared over. That means that right now, most people can use Bicycle Health telehealth with no copayment or a small one. In addition, states are currently re-evaluating how they cover telehealth with Medicaid, and most states are expanding their telehealth coverage. There is no single answer to “does Medicaid pay for telehealth treatment,” and we do not expect people to figure it out for themselves. If you would like us to check for you, please contact us here or call us at (844) 943-2514.
