Medicare insurance covers ostomy supplies!!

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
