SCARY topic, huh? Well, here's my question. My supplier, just a small town DME supplier, told me yesterday that they are not going to be able to continue to give me the prices they have in the past on my supplies since my insurance (Anthem) isn't reimbursing them to cover their costs. They say there is a "generic" that they can get that would NOT cost me any co-pay. Obviously, this is not something that I would have ever looked into BUT she showed me a pouch and a wafer and to be honest, I was quite impressed. I use Convatec 2 piece... and it was very, very similar.
So, my question, being the blonde that I am, I have a horrible memory when it comes to names and I can't remember the manufacturer's name on the box of pouches. It started with G-E-N.... I think. Maybe G-E-N something, something A-I-X? I have been looking on the internet and have not been successful. I do remember seeing that it was manufactured in the UK for distribution out of Florida. I may have to call them on Monday cuz this curiosity is killing me. Any ideas anyone????
