Filling Your Deodorized Tincture of Opium
Share |

Have you noticed that your prescribed Tincture of Opium is more difficult to fill lately?  It’s been dropped from some insurance companies' formularies, but help may be available to cover the cost.  Lisa Metzger has talked to the folks at Marathon Pharmaceuticals, now the sole manufacturer, and found that there are patient support/reimbursement options available.

 

If you have a prescription for tincture of opium but: 

  • your plan public or private has removed it from their formulary;
  • you re in the Medicare donut hole;
  • you’ve reached the maximum of your private insurance policy; or
  • filling the prescription would cause you financial hardship, 

contact Marathon directly at (866) 945-7860, option 6, to see what might be available to you.
