The cost of buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) varies widely and is usually insurance-dependent. The best way to find cost is to contact your insurance company.
Generally speaking, though:
Many private insurance companies DO cover Suboxone, as long as a physician deems it is medically necessary. Some insurance companies require a prior authorization request in which the provider must submit a form to get it approved before prescribing it. Some insurance companies also dictate the formulation (generic formulation: buprenorphine-naloxone versus brand-name) and whether they will cover films/strips versus tablets/pills. They also might specify a maximum daily dose and length of treatment. Patients will also likely be charged a copay based on their plan.
You can also get discounted buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) using pharmacy coupons or cash prizes. If you go to the GoodRx website (goodrx.com), you can enter in your zip code and find coupons and discounts at your pharmacy of choice. (On average, if you use GoodRx coupons/discounts, you can slash the typical price of generic Suboxone film from $395 to $118).
