These figures are a byproduct of the wide availability of opioid replacement therapies — including Suboxone — within the Medicaid program. Since 2010, the Medicaid program noted the numbers of buprenorphine prescriptions (in film and tablet forms) and participants filling these prescriptions per month were 5,631 and 3,448, respectively. The average of monthly buprenorphine prescriptions increased to 11,132 in 2015. At the same time, the average number of enrollees filling these prescriptions per month increased to 7,198 — a 108 percent increase over 2010. These figures illustrate that Maryland offers robust access to opioid replacement therapies — many of which are not captured in these statistics, including naltrexone and methadone.
