**if you contest the in-office rapid UA results and request a 2nd test an additional $40 will be charged to your visit**

** if we feel you have tampered with the sample or attempting to tamper with the process and 2nd test will be initiated and an additional $40 will be charged to your visit**

  • Weekly office visit:  $200 (includes: office visit + Rx + in-office rapid UA)

  • Weekly Urine Drug Screen (sent to lab for confirmation) $100

 

All new suboxone patients must be seen weekly x 1 month.  

If patient remains "clean" x 1 month then patient will be seen monthly but must come in for "drive-by" urinalysis every 2 weeks for Urine Drug Screen (sent to lab for confirmation) $100

Failure to do "drive-by" urinalysis every 2 weeks is counted as a "dirty" UA resulting in patient restarting weekly clinic visits x 1 month.
