Our insurance is totally screwy and we just found out we have to pay the next 3000 out of pocket! Yay. I usually order from edgepark where a pack of flanges is 95.00 i can get them from a few other places for like 40-50 Those are the same thing right? Its still hollister, just alot cheaper. Has anyone had a problem ordering from a cheaper place?

Call Edgepark and see what kind of discount they will give you. They always give me a big discount if the insurance doesn't cover the item. I would try that first.

BTW, are you having any problems with the Hollister stuff? I keep hearing of quality control problems.

summerstorm~I've been buying things my insurance doesn't cover on line (and for about half the price) without any problems:)

It has always been the same that I got from my supplier!
