Luckily, there are many ways to save money even if you don’t have health insurance. If you have Medicaid or health insurance, click here.
Tip #1: Use GoodRx to Save on Suboxone
Every pharmacy has different prices. If you do not have insurance, GoodRx offers discounts on prescription medication like Suboxone. You do not need to sign up.

Then, select your dosage and how many tablets you take per month. Sort by lowest prices.
Then, select the “GET FREE COUPON” button.
A coupon like the one below should show up.
Bring your prescription to the pharmacy and show the coupon to the pharmacist. You’ll pay the price on the coupon. Using GoodRx is the best way to save money on Suboxone.
Tip #2: Get Free Zubsolv Tablets
Another way to save on Suboxone is to switch to a medication called Zubsolv (Buprenorphine HCL/Naloxone HCL). Zubsolv contains the same ingredients as Suboxone, but is often cheaper for patients without insurance. This is because Zubsolv offers several programs to help patients save money.
Before getting Zubsolv, you must talk to your doctor about switching your Suboxone dose. Compared to Suboxone, Zubsolv reaches the blood faster which is why the doses seems smaller. However, the amount of Buprenorphine in your blood is the same.
Use this dosing tablet to estimate how many Zubsolv tablets you will take in one month.
|One 2 mg/0.5 mg Tablet||One 1.4 mg/0.34 mg Tablet|
|One 8 mg/2 mg Tablet||One 5.7 mg/1.4 mg Tablet|
|12 mg/3 mg taken as:|
One 8 mg/2 mg Tablet AND
Two 2 mg/0.5 mg Tablets
|One 8.6 mg/2.1 mg Tablet|
|16 mg/4 mg taken as:|
Two 8 mg/2 mg tablets
|One 11.4 mg/2.9 mg Tablet|
Zubsolv offers the first 15 tablets free. You can redeem this offer twice. Click here to get the coupon. After you’ve used that twice, you’ll need to use this method below.
Tip #3: Switch to Zubsolv
Once you’ve figured out how many Zubsolv tablets you’ll be taking a month, go to GoodRx Zubsolv Page. Change the quantity and dose and sort by lowest prices.
The price for 30 5.7 mg/1.4 mg Zubsolv tablets is $275.25. Then, use the Zubsolv Copay Coupon. It is the second coupon on the page.
This coupon will help you save money. You can use it as many times as you need. It will help you save up to $225. The new price is the GoodRx Price – upto $225. Therefore, the price is $275.25 – $225 = $50.25. This is your price every month. There are some other rules, but this is how the card basically works.
Zubsolv says you can use GoodRx with the Copay Card. The pharmacist should enter GoodRx as the Primary Insurance and the Copay Card as the Secondary Insurance. Also, Zubsolv sent us free Copay Cards to give away! Send us an email if you need a card and we’ll be happy to send you one!
NOTE: ZUBSOLV IS NOT ALWAYS CHEAPER THAN GENERIC SUBOXONE. MAKE SURE TO COMPARE THE GOODRX PRICES OF EACH MEDICATION.
Tip #4: Consider Suboxone Tablets
If you take Suboxone Film, you may be able to save money by switching to Suboxone tablets.
As you can see, 60 8 mg/2 mg strips costs $101.79 while 60 8 mg/2 mg tablets costs $75.15. You can save money by switching to Suboxone tablets.
There are many ways to save on Suboxone, even if you don’t have health insurance. You can use GoodRx, switch to Zubsolv, use Zubsolv coupons, and switch to Suboxone Tablets. These are all ways you can pay less for Suboxone every month. If you have Medicaid, make sure they are paying for your Suboxone; you should not be paying more than $10 a month for Suboxone if you have Medicaid. If you are, contact the number on the back of your Medicaid card to find a pharmacy that accepts Medicaid. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].
