Just forgot to ask in my last thread if Methadone is covered by insurance? I have an HMO.

I have Kaiser Permanente (which is a Cali HMO, but its also in other states, WA, VA, etc) and it was covered for me for methadone during my pain management treatments, but I don't know about if its in conjunction with detox. I would imagine they would cover it for detox if they did for pain management, but they would give you generic (methadose) since thats what HMO's are best known for! I didn't notice anything different between it and the regular (which I had before).
