To Anonymous: If we could take more insurance plans, we would. It is very difficult to get a contract with these insurance companies, especially when we are such a small office with only myself and Kris to support the administrative tasks such as billing. For other types of offices (like Primary Care for instance) they can get coverage very easily but our services are not simple and many plans don't want to pay for substance abuse coverage. You always have the option of submitting proof of payment, which I can provide to you upon request, to your insurance company to get reimbursed but I can't bill them directly. Also, any other Suboxone doctor in this area accepts NOTHING but cash so it really isn't unacceptable.
Dr. V is expensive for what you get, which never really feels like true psychoanalysis. He only takes one insurance plan, which is unacceptable in this day and age. If you're opiate dependent, you can taper down on suboxone, but you have to be in moderate w/d to start it. He gave me a 30 day supply of 8mg sub., which was way more than what I needed, both as a dose and in the number of units. I have heard coming off sub. is worse than a heroin w/d, so it is a drug that should be respected. He can give you a shot of vivitrol, which is a long-acting form of the opiate/alcohol blocking drug naltrexone. He charges $150 just to do that, but the shot lasts for 30 days and is worth considering. All in all, this is not the most professional experience I've had with a Dr.
