I have a friend who has a colostomy. Since he got it he has lost his job and now has no insurance. He is having trouble getting any assistance. He says that if he gets a job that because of his colostomy being pre existing that he will not be able to have the reversal. I thought that pre-existing was only for a year. Anyone have any clues as to how this does work if you don't have insurance and then get it, will it pay for you to have a reversal. I have helped him out as much as I can with extra supplies I have had and given him the name of suppliers to call and get samples, I really don't know what else to do. Any advice would be appricated.
