Hi fellow ostomyniks--
The ostomy nurse at Columbia/NYC, where I recently switched from Cleveland Clinic, was surprised that I was paying for my ostomy supplies out of pocket. I was pleasantly surprised that insurance would cover the costs.
I now have an account with EdgePark.com, with doctor approval for me to receive catheter, lube and no-sting spray at no cost to me. They set up a 3-month auto delivery so that I don't need to keep reordering. The only problem is Medicare's guidelines cover 1 tube lube/month and I need five. Nurse is currently working on an over-ride. It took some time and patience to set it up correctly, but I found the staff very helpful--he even gave me his direct line!!
So if you do not already have insurance covering your supplies--and I can't speak about other insurance coverages are--I suggest you give it a try. Saves some money!!! Janet
