Free ZubSolv is available
I have written about this topic of free ZubSolv and Free Suboxone in the past and I have posted videos on the topic as well. More than almost any other topic, people have reached out to get more information on free medication. Opioid detox in an outpatient setting works, but the medication can be very expensive.
We are at war
Part of the war on drugs involves fighting the disease of addiction. While resources are available, addiction is winning. The cost of medication is a serious problem. Therefore, we need to do whatever it takes to lower prices.
When you ask drug companies about prices, they talk about copays and preferred coverage. They assume we all have insurance. Not everyone has coverage. Even when we do, we either have to jump through impossible hoops or are denied coverage for certain treatments.
Where are the affordable generics?
Why are some generic drugs more expensive than others? They don’t cost more to make. The explanations don’t make sense. People are suffering with life-threatening illness and they cannot afford the treatment.
Some help is available
While not a perfect solution, there are patient assistance programs that can help. If you do not have insurance and you do not have a high income, consider applying for patient assistance.
Orexo, the company that makes ZubSolv, has made available a couple of useful programs. ZubSolv is a medication that contains buprenorphine and naloxone. It is similar to Suboxone. The difference is that it comes in a tablet that dissolves quickly and it does not have an unpleasant aftertaste. It is, however, quite expensive.
Orexo has made available vouchers that cover up to 30 free tablets of ZubSolv. These vouchers pay for your prescription at the pharmacy. You may only use these vouchers once per patient. Nevertheless, it is a great way for a doctor to be able to help a patient right away.
Orexo also has a program that provides up to six months of free medication. To qualify for this program, you need to fill out an application and meet certain criteria. Please watch the video and comment here if it is helpful or if you have questions.
