    Default Suboxone and health insurance - PCIP and/or Aetna

    I am on sub at 12 MG/day

    I have been on both blue cross and cigna - both paid for the suboxone. But I need to pick a new Insurance provider.

    Does anyone know if the new PCIP health plan for people with pre-existing conditions covers Suboxone?

    My other choice is Aetna. I read on old post here that said they will cover it, but not if you are on it when you sign up. Does anyone know about Aetna and Suboxone?

    Thank so much, I really need this information to make a decision soon!!

    Replying to my own thread - I see the PCIP plan covers "substance abuse" and has a max of something like 30% or $300, whichever is greater, on non-formulary drugs. I just don't if sub if a non-formulary drug.

    Aetna will pay for Sub up to three 8/2 strips per day (I am pretty sure 8/2 is the official name for the 8mg strips) but Aetna requires "precertification" before they will agree to pay for the sub, and I am not sure what that entails. Once again - anyone with any experince with Aetna please let me know.

    Hey MF'er.. :-) ,

    I would not take insurance advice from a bunch of random dope-fiends, Not to mention, my plan, may look nothing like your plan with the same company. It sounds like you are now looking up the policies... I would try calling the companies anonymously and seeing what you can find out.

    I've dealt with that pre-certification bullshit, If you are not working for a corporate giant, or are dirt poor on medicaid, get ready for a fight. I am pre-certified "out of my f-ing mind", and no insurance company in their right mind would cover me. Goodluck.

    why not take this opportunity to free yourself of the chains of addiction. You have done it before so you can do it again. True, much easier to jump off H but it is what it is. Cant go back, need to start from where you are.

    Maybe this is a blessing for you... give you the opportunity to reclaim your life. I cant and wouldnt help someone stay on sub.. esp that ridculous high dose. If you want help getting free.. myself and many others would jump at the chance to help you.

    Good luck in your journey
    omission is not honesty, only a different way of lying.
