Your Insurance May Cover Effective, Safe Opioid Addiction Treatment

If you or someone you love is addicted to opioid painkillers or heroin, it’s important to know there is an FDA-approved treatment, Suboxone, that can get you off the drugs fast — in as little as three days!

Dr. Jahan Chaudhry, founder of the Long Island Compassionate Medical Center, uses Suboxone, along with behavior modification and counseling, as part of Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), to help his patients get off opioids and back to their lives. And, your health insurance may cover the costs!

Suboxone, a sublingual film, is a combination of two medications (naloxone and buprenorphine) and is very successful when it comes to helping people kick their opioid painkillers or heroin addiction.

When someone is addicted to heroin their brain and body craves the drugs. However, Suboxone decreases and actually suppresses these cravings without side effects.

BENEFITS OF SUBOXONE INCLUDE:

  • ​Reduces the body’s physical need for the opioid drugs
  • ​Reduces withdrawal symptoms usually associated with drug detox such as cravings

MAT is a whole-patient approach to the treatment of opioid dependency. When taken as prescribed, Suboxone is a safe and effective treatment of opioid dependency.

Since the opioid epidemic is so severe, some insurance companies are now covering suboxone, which can be rather expensive without insurance.

In fact, according to ACA, the Affordable Care Act, most insurers are required to cover treatment benefits when it comes to addiction. Further, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA), forces health insurance companies to pay for the same level of benefits for addiction treatment and behavioral health services as they do for primary care.

Don’t allow insurance coverage to stadin the way of you kicking your addiction to heroin or opioid painkillers.

We understand that the stress of paying for the medication is an important consideration, however, nothing is more important than getting off opioid drugs.
