I don't know. The federal government was lobbied extensively by inpatient rehabs to try to prevent this medication from coming on the market. The end result was that the federal government imposed patient limits on the physicians, so that each physician is only allowed to treat thirty patients at a time.Does Dr. Hager accept Medicaid for this program??
After seeing the great need for this medication and the limited number of doctors that are prescribing it, Congress went back and ammended the law so that a physician is now allowed to treat up to one hundred patients; but only after they have offered the program for a year. I know it is silly, as there is no other treatment program or medication that has such limitations placed upon it, but it is the law. It is just part of the federal government's intrusion into the practice of medicine.
I think that the hospital's suboxone program may take medicaid; but I don't know if medicaid pays for the physician. It does, however, cover the medication.
