They currently do not have a program of that nature. Many, many people need such a program but generally you can't get help for pain management. I am on Opana IM & ER @ $1760.00 a month. Thank God for my insurance!

Yes, getting assistance for these types of medications is very difficult. If you have no insurance at all, you can try:

PPARX.org

and see if they have a program to help.

Have you tried asking your doctor for another alternative?

If you can not afford your pain medications the best to do is ask for methadone. It is great for pain, and is CHEAP!! I think I paid about $20.00 for 120 of them. It is not used just to get off stuff... However, you must drink fluids and take Senna-S for you bowels. Senna-S is about $7.00 a bottle and will really help you. You can take up to 8 a day, but about 5 every other day or so works for me. It is natural too!!! Good luck.

Check with Endo, who is the manufacturer of the product. They didn't use to have an assitance program for Opana, but now they do.

I recently had the same problem, I am prescribed Opana ER & Opana immediate release tablets. My wife just lost her job and along with it our insurance. I contacted Endo Pharmaceuticals and they are sending out a prescription drug assistance application today. You should contact them with your household information (i.e. number of dependents and annual income etc...) and they will let you know if you qualify. Thank god for this! Without assistance my prescription costs for Opana alone would run over $2000.00 per month! Good Luck.

Dont know where you reside, but most people taking drugs like Opana are disabled or have a chronic pain issue. In PA, they have a program called Medical Assistance for Workers with Disabilities. Several states have the program as well. Go to the and look up MAWD Program. You need proof that you work and documentation from you doctor as to what your medical conditions are and how long they may be expected to last. Most types of health care providers are covered with small co-pay. Medications are $1-$3. You pay a monthly premium that depends on how much you make a month and is adjusted if your work hours decline.

I am disabled but have lost my sicial security benefits due to my wife's recent bout with cancer. Too much money (her social security insurance and my ssi) under one roof or something to that effect. I am racked with RA pain in hands and feet along with 5 herniated discs and scoliosis. I am out of work and out of money. If my doctor prescribes Opana is there a program for me out there. If not Opana; any ideas ? I live in south Florida and the DEA has effectively cut off all supplies of generic narcotic medication.

Chronic Pain Patient Says:

Your doctor should have the 50% off copay(up to $25) cards at their office. If not, I think you can print or request one at the Endo or Opana websites. The one I have, was good for a year...max of 12 uses against a one month supply of Opana ER (any strength).
Good luck to you, and god bless!

Chronic Pain Patient Says:

When I lost my insurance, my pain doc had me use Methadone... It cost $38 for #120 - 10mg tabs. Ask specialty pharmacies for cash discounts...they don't advertise them, but usually have them...also shop around, as the prices can be dramatically different! I didn't like the Methadone side effects, and was able to get Morphine ER , #90 - 100mg tabs for $54. These are cheap compared to the insane prices on the newer products, my Opana costs the insurance company$1421 for #90 - 40mg tabs! Good luck and god bless you!

ENDO is a bunch of cowardly bastards who folded under pressure from the FDA when Opana ER suddenly "came under fire" because the addicts and true "junkies" learned how to bypass their anti-abuse mixture in the pills.

The FDA says that there has been a "spike in HIV and Hep-C, along with other blood-borne diseases" so they are forcing it off the market.

What they are not saying is that it is the addicts who rule the marketplace, and people like me and others who TRULY NEED the medication and who do not abuse it, are being left out in the cold.

We all know that the addicts will find another drug to abuse, and then the FDA will go after that manufacturer, and so forth, until there are no opiate medications remaining on the market.

THAT is the essence of the current administration's "Anti-opiate" effort. They take billions of dollars of our tax money and pay-off the big pharma houses NOT to sell the opiate medications that help millions, all because the junkies are killing themselves. I do not wish death on anyone, but why force me and others like me, who are afflicted by REAL DISEASES and chronic, severe pain, just because they cannot control the junkies? This makes me ill to think about. "Big brother" and governmental over-reach at it's worst.

Ask your dr to prescribe you the generic form which is just called oxy morphone. It costs about 1/4 of the price of brand name opana n in my case I think it might work better as well

Hello, I may be late to the conversation but I just ran across this thread and wanted to let you know about my experience. I was prescribed 20mg Opana er x twice daily, when I went to pick it up at the pharmacy the cashier said "that will be $485.00"!! I almost fainted!! Needless to say I spoke to my Dr. and his nurse overheard the conversation, about me not being able to afford this. But instead of switching me to something cheaper, his nurse told me about a program she had heard about. Endo pharm. has a program for low income people, and she gave me a pamplet with info to inquire about. After a short application process it was determined that I did qualify. I began receiving 60 20mg tablets/pills from Endo pharm. directly for FREE!! The program lasted for one year, but you can reapply every year if you want. Your Dr. will have to send them your Rx every month, but it is SO worth it to get them free for a year!!

Best of luck!

"Payers can play a critical role in helping tackle the opioid crisis, which not only threatens the nation’s health but also contributes to fraud, waste and abuse, according to a new white paper.

Because of their relationships with healthcare providers, pharmacies, insured patients, employers and even law enforcement, payers are in a powerful position to intervene in this public health crisis, says the paper, which was produced by the Healthcare Fraud Prevention Partnership.

Thus, a group of HFPP members—including major payers like Aetna, Cigna and Anthem and government agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services—came up with five actions that they say “should be strongly considered for implementation by all payers as soon as possible.”

These include:

Train providers on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain.” Payers should consider communication and incentive models that encourage providers to understand and adhere to the CDC’s recommendations, the paper says.

Promote access to and usage of Medication-Assisted Treatment. Because adding MAT to behavioral therapy is more effective in treating opioid use disorders than behavioral therapy alone, the paper suggests this approach should be widely promoted and reimbursed.

Promote the availability of naloxone. Reducing barriers to patients’ access to naloxone as well as reimbursement for the drug prevents the “catastrophic consequences” of ineffective management or misuse of prescription opioids.

Encourage the use of data to identify and correct fraudulent, wasteful, or abusive practices associated with opioids. Data systems can help identify patients at risk for opioid use disorder as well as identify and prevent non-medical use of prescription opioids and drug-diversion schemes, the paper notes. So it encourages payers to participate in studies that use cross-payer data to identify and act on fraudulent or wasteful activities across organizations.

Identify and share effective practices across the healthcare sector. Payers should work together to communicate the best ways to identify at-risk patients, treat or prevent opioid use disorder, and identify providers whose prescribing practices fail to comply with CDC guidelines. “Through coordinated action, payers, including members of the HFPP, have the opportunity to dramatically influence and reduce opioid misuse in the U.S.,” the white paper says.

In fact, insurers have already taken steps to mitigate the opioid crisis. Cigna, for example, eliminated prior authorization rules that can lead to delays for patients receiving MAT. And last week, Anthem announced that it set a goal of reducing the amount of opioids dispensed among its members by 30% by the end of 2019."

Who is your insurance company, if you don't mind? I have UHC and they have been covering my Opana ER and OxyMorphone IR for several yrs after my doctor files prior authorizations and formulary exceptions. Now they have limited my quantity on the IR to 4 mos. I need to find a company that covers both. I have tried most of the other meds over the past 15 yrs. I have had to take pain meds for a botched back surgery. If anyone knows of an ins co that covers these 2 meds in south Florida, please advise. Thx
