My insurance does not cover ostomy supplies. Edgepark discounts 40% to customers who have insurance that won't cover. Thought that might help in case you find yourself in that situation. You have to mention it to them, I don't think they volunteer that info.

Thank YOU!!!  I will remember that !!!

I ordered on line and a man called me today and said they got my order wanted to know what hospital I was in and said he would sent me a catalog. he never said anything about the insurance , so I guess that is a good sign. I called my insurance twice to talk to someone to see what they covered, but because of their phone system after i went through all the cr#p of giving my numbers and everything, I was told to either hold for aprox. 20 minutes or leave a message , so I left a message , I was supost to get a call back within  two business days , but never heard a thing.  I had to get this stuff ordered or I would have ran out.

Its nice to know that I can get 40% off  incase they wont pay. You have been a huge help.

A BIG THANK YA comes your way.

Tonia

I'll answer this and then do an intro post.

I called my insurance company, after buying supplies myself for 20 years, and asked, it took over an hour, but they had an agreement with a supply company.  It is amazing, I phone in a request, 4 days later I have the supplies and never a bill, not even a copay.  Insurance is Aetna, but of course every group plan is different
