Frequently Asked Questions

How much does this cost?
We accept Medicare, Aetna, Blue Shield (PPO) and Cigna. Our self pay fees are $199/month. This monthly fee includes all appointments, health coaching and online support groups. You can use any insurance to pay for prescriptions and lab tests.
Do you accept Medi-Cal or Medicaid?
We do not accept Medi-Cal or Medicaid for our fees. That said, you can use your Medi-Cal or Medicaid benefits card to pay for medications and lab tests. Just take your card with you to the pharmacy or the lab.
What can you prescribe to help with pain and withdrawal symptoms?
Our physicians prescribe Buprenorphone/Naloxone (Suboxone) to overcome opioid withdrawal. They also typically prescribe medications like Zofran (nausea and vomiting), Tizanidine (muscle relaxant), Hydroxyzine (non addictive sedative for anxiety), Loperamide (diarrhea and abdominal cramps) and Naproxen (muscle pain). If you are in still in pain, we shall utilize non opioid alternatives to manage your pain. The exact option depends on the cause of pain and can vary based on whether or not you have chronic pain.
Do you have to be in withdrawal to start treatment?
No! You don’t need to be in withdrawal at your first appointment. However, when you are starting your Suboxone prescription you will need to abstain from using your opioid of choice and you will experience some withdrawal symptoms. Then, you will start Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone) which will help overcome those symptoms and remove opioid cravings. You may have some side effects as you adjust to the medication, but we will be available to help you with anything you need! Your provider will work closely with you throughout the process to check in on how you’re doing and help you through it. If you have concerns about this process, we’d be happy to schedule a time for one of our providers to give you a call to talk more in detail about it
Will I get a prescription at my first appointment?
Yes! The provider will call in your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice. Refills will be prescribed during follow ups.

Our treatment for opioid withdrawal

Bicycle Health offers Medication Assisted Treatment to provide relief for opioid withdrawal and long term treatment to cut down on or stop using opioids.

We typically prescribe a formulation of Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone) and provide free online support groups and mental health services. Here's how the process works:

Talk with a compassionate coach

A trained health coach will learn more about you, your withdrawal symptoms, your cravings, mental health needs and your health goals. Get answers to any questions you might have and make sure that our program can help you reach your goals.

Doctor visits via phone & video calls

Meet your doctor via a video call from the comfort of your home. No waiting rooms. Completely confidential. After a thorough medical evaluation, the doctor will choose the right care plan for you to decrease your opioid use. All follow ups will be via phone or video calls as well.

Prescription refills

Your prescription will be sent electronically to a pharmacy near you. The prescription will be refilled at every follow up call with your doctor.

Online support groups

Too often, the journey to get off opioids can be a lonely one. These meetings are a safe space with only people who are looking for help with opioid use. Come share your story and support others on this journey. All meetings can be attended via phone or video calls.

Reviews

One of the things I love about Bicycle Health is the ability to use telemedicine 
to communicate with my doctor. Appointments can take place anywhere 
I am: at work, when I’m out of town, even in my bed at home! I am so grateful for the compassionate care I’ve received from Bicycle Health.

I was introduced to Medication Assisted Treatment and it changed my life. Bicycle health was very helpful, supportive and assisted me without judgement. Now I feel I have a reason to live, have hopes for the future and finally feel relatively happy. I have not known happiness as long as I can remember.

I’ve tried many other programs and rehabs but none of them have ever come close to the innovative, effective, design of this program and its administrators. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BICYCLE HEALTH!!! I would suggest that anyone who’s struggling with opioid dependence, contact them for help today!
