The only way to get the pills from a doctor would be if they are prescribed for pain. It would also take a great deal of pain to be put on methadone. It really isn't prescribed much for pain yet but is getting a little more popular. Even if you were prescribed them for pain I don't think they would even put you on a dose anywhere near 80mg. I have a friend who is prescribed them for pain and he is prescribed 5mg 3 times a day. He is also in a lot of pain and it does the trick for him.
Does your insurance know that you want them to cover at a methadone clinic? They might be thinking you are trying to get them to cover from a pain management doctor.
I know this isn't much help but not real sure about how all that would work. Hopefully someone will come along soon and be able to help you out. I didn't think any insurance covered a methadone clinic but can't say for sure. I thought it was cash payment only.
Hope you can find the answers you need. There's a member here named gnarly that may be of some help.
Best of luck to you.

call caresource and explain your situation and find out what you need to do to get your treatment covered.

Also, this forum is more for ppl trying to get off meds... you might get better info at the Pain Management forum.

Good Luck!

NOT EVERYONE CAN JUST "GET OFF OF THEM" HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT THAT THIS PERSON TAKES METHADONE BECOUSE IT KEEPS HIM/HER OFF THE STREETS SHOOTING HERION OR STEALING AND ROBBING FOR OXYCONTINS?? IT TAKES SEVERAL WEEKS IF NIT MINTHS TO "GET OFF" THESE HARD DRUGS,  sOME PEOPLE CANT JUST SET IN THERE BED FOR MONTHS FIGHTING THROUGH WITHDRAWL SYMPTOMS.  PEOPLE GO TO METHADONE CLINICS SO THEY CAN LIVE A SOMEWHAT NORMAL LIFE, GET THERE LIFE STRAIGHT WITH A JOB OR GET THEIR KIDS BACK FROM SOCIAL SERVICES, THEN THEY SEE THEIR LIFE GOING IN A GREAT DIRECTION THEN THEY DETOX SLOWLY OFF OF METHADONE. IF PEOPLE JUST "QUIT TAKING" THEM THEY WOULD DIE FROM WITHDRAWL OR IN THE STREETS FOM USING.  ALSO HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT THAT THIS SPECIFIC PERSON HAS TRIED GEETING OFF OF HERION OR OXYS AND THIS IS WHY THEY ARE IN A METHADONE TREATMENT PROGRAM NOW.. WOW PEOPLE THAT HAVE NEVER USED AND BEEN THERE REALLY DONT GET IT
