The ostomy supplies she uses are the New Image from Hollister and the strip paste is also from Coloplast. I don't know if I can get them to change as I believe they are the only ones covered. I get 100% coverage for her. 75% through Aids to Daily Living and the rest through my insurance plan. The strip paste has no alcohol in it because that is what they figured what was causing the allergy with the other paste. The Eakin Seals she uses as a dip paste to fill in the creases of her skin to prevent leakage. I never realized that she could use it as an actual seal paste.
Thank you for the websites. I will check them out and see what kind of samples I can get. Also I will talk to my dr to see if maybe they can change the supplies to see if that helps, then they can talk to the insurance to see if they can get special coverage.
I'm really glad I have found this site. It's helping me understand information that I feel like I've been drowning in the past 2 years.
