Questions to Ask

When calling the doctor's office:

  1. Is this an outpatient facility? *If you are not interested in going to rehab, make sure to mention that. Outpatient means you go to the facility, have a visit, and leave. In-patient means you staff overnight.

  2. Is Suboxone prescribed here?

  3. Do you accept with Aetna Better Health NJ for Suboxone services?

  4. When is your soonest availability?

  5. Is there anything else I should know before my visit?

Once you have the answers to these questions and found a doctor, call the number on the back of your Medicaid card and ask these questions:

  1. How much will the visit cost?

  2. Do I need to get a referral from my PCP before?

  3. Do I have a PCP?

  4. Are you able to provide free transportation to my visit?

  5. What pharmacy should I have the doctor send the prescription to? OR I found this pharmacy on through the online pharmacy tool. Is it in-network and is Suboxone covered? How much will I have to pay for my Suboxone prescription? *(NOTE: Suboxone is now a generic. Ask the agent how much Suboxone costs as a generic with your plan.)

  6. Is there anything else I should know before my visit?

  7. The answers to some of the questions can be found in the Plan Document, but you should always double check by calling.
