When considering office-based treatment for opioid or alcohol dependence, it is important to be aware of the related costs of treatment. These include medications, urine drug screening, and in certain cases, blood work.
PLEASE NOTE: these charges are separate and distinct from the fees billed for office visits.
- Medications: Fees for Suboxone®, Vivitrol®, and other medications are paid directly to pharmacies; prospective patients should contact their pharmacy or the drug manufacturer for details regarding pricing. Most insurance companies will cover these medications, and the co-pay amount may be reduced or eliminated by the drug manufacturers. These medications may or may not be covered; prospective patients are encouraged to contact their plans for details.
Laboratory Tests: Harmony Mental Health Services of NW requires patients undergoing substance treatment to have random urine drug testing. Although many plans will cover this cost, the outside lab may bill the patient for any amounts not covered by insurance. For those individuals without insurance, the outside lab will charge a fee billed directly to the patient. In my experience urine, toxicology screens are around $60 out-of-pocket.
