Hi I'm new to the group and was taking Suboxone tablets for a motor cycle accedent and my husband is in the army and now stationed in germany so my question is does any one know how much a visit here in germany and how much my prescription would be until my command sponsor is approved through the military? It'll be like me not having insurance through germany and I'm not sure if I'm even posting this on the right place

HI JessNorman.
I do not have an answer to your question right now.
I do have a relative who would know this information, would it be okay if I shared your question with her?

Hi, sorry I can't help much with this.

If your husband is a member of the United States Military, he must have been briefed, ahead of time, about all medical matters overseas. You will probably have been enrolled in a Tricare Prime Plan. I imagine he has already enrolled you in DEERS. This is something that has to be done in order to be eligible for military medical benefits.

Your husband could contact his superiors and get some information on how to go about these things, and also on what to do while waiting to get enrolled.

I would suggest to try to get a hold of Tricare in the United States and ask them your questions. They may be able to help you. Humana Military is also involved with Tricare plans, and they could also be of help with your questions.

Here are some links about information on how to contact Tricare
https://www.tricare.mil/ContactUs/CallUs
https://tricare.mil/Home/ContactUs/CallUs/AllContacts 
https://www.humanamilitary.com/about-us/contact-us

If you can’t open these links, you can try these numbers:

Tricare Customer Service          1-800-444-5445 (Mon – Fri, 8am to 6pm)

Tricare Prime Remote                1-877-249-9179

Active Duty                              1-877-249-9179

Defense  Enrollment Eligibility Reporting: DEERS: 1-800-538-9552

I hope this can be of some help...Edie

Thank you Edie for posting the information.

I hope JessNorman that the information that Edie has given you is a start.

In the mean time if you need somewhere to talk about what is going on Chronic pain site is a great place to receive support.

Please call your Dr and ask. There are different ways to make the switch over from one drug to another and often times it's done while weaning from one to the other. But to be safe, follow your healthcare providers advice

Please donate to help Chronicpainsite.com continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.
