I'm having the same issue with the codes. Bcbs is saying h0020 is for Medicaid agencies only.

Here is an awesome link I found, It shows all of the reimbustment codes for BCBS. Its for suboxone but I figure they are so close that they should work. If not it gets us a bit closer to figuring out the correct code to use.

You may try to get an In benefit exception from your health plan. If there are no in network providers within a certain mileage from you they will have to consider this and could possibly pay for your treatment at the in network benefits rate.

That is not the case at the one I went to. Maybe "guest" is not insulted it is only different at her clinic. js

I am in the same boat. I was told to review all forms (about 75) to find the correct form. No such luck. But I keep on searching and hope I will find the appropriate coverage. The HMO and PPO seems to muddle in conflicting directions. Please let me know of your progress as I will do the same. Good luck David C

Hi. I just started the process of getting BCBS of Georgia for reimbursiment of my Suboxone fees beginning in Feb. of 2014. If one switches to Suboxone/Buprenorphine, help may be available. Mos Methadone clinics don't accept insurance (too much paper work. But you can do the paper work yourself if not al ready doing so. Call Customer service and the will send you the correct forms. This is as far I have gone. I have the Silver Plan I am hoping this will help. %50 would be great. 

I ask you all if I am wasting my time ? The drug company has a program called Here To Help. Do a google search. This is for sub. Don't know about Methadone. I

I live in South, GA and the clinic is great; very professional. If you are on liquid, meth, one can ween down by 1mg every 2-3 weeks or longer. 

Has any of you all tried this? I am curious. 

Good luck to you all.

Oh. One more thing. Though I cannot remember the contact number for rapid detox centers, Tere are low cost around $8000.00 or $1900.00+ with insurance. I'l be damned for losing this website. Good luck you all, David C

First of all a dr prescription is needed to get methadone ,it's a legal drug, the clinic makes you see a licensed nurse as you dose ,it's not like getting a coffee at dunkins , it's people like you who don't know what they are talking about that cause the discrimination that comes with methadone. A dr can prescribe methadone for back pain and it's ok but for massive entire body pain that comes from withdrawal it's not ok , it's all about the way people think of addiction, it's there fault , they have a choice ,junky scumbag. Well wrong , it's a disease and like diabetes ,if a diabetic doesn't get there insulin they get sick, do we say its a diabetics fault for eating sh*t and not exercising ,fact is a chemical is missing in the body and methadone replaces it ,just like insulin ,there are people who abuse it and mix it with other drugs to get high .but getting high on methadone may happen a if you never took a opiate but no one at the clinic is there getting high ,fact !!America's heath insurance company's are rotten and anyone that profits off the sick is evil ,capitalism at its best , we are all going to die you cant take money with you ,so why not treat each other with respect and not judge , if a drug is legal it should be covered

HI ive had the same problem. My claim just got denied with the code H0020. however when i looked over my paper work there was an additional code that i did not put on my claim form.which is 99212. i called bcbs and asked if that could be the issue and it most certainly was. im now re submittting with the 99212 and also asked to make sure it was covered...it is,and hopefully this time it works.
