Costs for Treatment at Wisconsin Suboxone


Below are the costs for treatment at Wisconsin Suboxone and buprenorphine.  All costs must be paid at the time of service.  I do not participate in any insurance panels, including medicare and medicaid (such as Badgercare).  You will find a better deal if you have Medicaid and find a program that accepts it.  But I am by far the least-expensive option for buprenorphine treatment, as my annual charge is usually below the deductible for most insurance plans.

The charge for the initial appointment is $350,  paid by cash or credit card at the time of the appointment. Follow-up appointments are $220.  Patients are seen each month for at least 4 months, and then the frequency of appointments may be reduced in patients who are doing well.

Medications are usually covered by insurance, including state insurance.  Patients without health insurance may choose to use plain buprenorphine, which costs about $120 per month for a standard dose of 16 mg per day.  Walgreens currently sells 60 tabs for $20 with the Good RX coupon.


The following will result in discharge:

  • Selling or sharing medication.
  • Inability to pay for appointments.
  • Threatening or disruptive behavior.
  • Clear signs that treatment is not working:  repeated substance-related legal problems, repeatedly losing medications, etc.
