In some cases, patients who are on Suboxone therapy will receive a periodic Suboxone urine test to ensure that they are taking the medication. However, this will depend on the policies of each Suboxone prescriber or facility.
Employers are not allowed to discriminate against patients who are on Suboxone therapy prescribed by a licensed provider.
If you are concerned about your employer checking for Suboxone and using the test results in negative ways against you, Bicycle Health providers will provide an official letter explaining you have a prescription for Suboxone, without breaking patient confidentiality. This helps reinforce the legal protections you have from employment discrimination.
