Suboxone prescriptions can range anywhere between $90 to $600 for a 30-day supply. The cost will depend on the prescription strength, number of doses needed in a day, and whether tablets or strips are used.

How Much Does A Prescription Of Suboxone Cost?

Suboxone can be an expensive drug without insurance, but the good news is that most insurance providers do cover Suboxone treatment.

There are many different factors that go into the pricing of Suboxone, so the price can fall in a large range. A Suboxone prescription can run anywhere from $90 to $600 for a 30-day supply.

Using Suboxone for medication-assisted treatment is one of the most effective ways to recover from opioid addiction when coupled with behavioral therapy and other types of addiction treatment.

What Factors Determine The Price Of Suboxone?

Suboxone comes in multiple variations of doses and strengths that affect pricing. A person may also need one to three doses daily in order to keep the symptoms of opioid withdrawal at bay.

A few factors that affect the pricing of Suboxone prescriptions include:

  • whether the prescription is for Suboxone strips or tablets
  • the number of pills or strips in the prescription
  • the strength of the medication (higher strengths closer to the 16 mg/4 mg dose will be more costly)
  • how many doses a person needs in a day

Cost Of Suboxone With Insurance

Most insurance providers will cover most, if not all, of the cost of Suboxone prescriptions.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Suboxone With Insurance

There are a few key factors that will influence the final cost of a Suboxone prescription, such as the following.

Meeting Your Deductible

The cost of your Suboxone prescription will depend on how high your deductible is with your specific health insurance provider.

If you have a high deductible, you’ll need to cover the cost of Suboxone out-of-pocket for a while until the deductible is met.


Not all health insurance plans have a copay, but if your plan does have a copay, that’s going to factor into the cost.

Some health insurance companies allow for Suboxone treatment at no copay, even if you usually have to pay one.

The cost for a Suboxone prescription with a copay can be up to about $470, depending on your insurance policy and the prescription.


With coinsurance, you and your health insurance are agreeing to cover Suboxone prescriptions (and other medical expenses) in differing amounts that add up to 100%.

For example, if you have coinsurance of 10% and your Suboxone prescription is $100, you’ll pay $10 out-of-pocket, and the insurance company will pay the remaining $90.

Cost Of Suboxone Without Insurance

Without insurance, Suboxone can get costly. The price will be different depending on whether Suboxone strips or pills are chosen.
