Help! Insurance won\'t cover catheters.

9 years 10 months ago #23733 by Stephany
Kathy, in cleaning out my house, I keep coming across some of my husband's catheters. He put them everywhere, just in case. I hate to toss them. Could I send them to you, also?

Yes, I have certainly detected several angels out there. Sharon and Charlotte, you are so gracious and generous. I never had this in mind when I posted my quandry. I was just looking for some more boxing gloves.I truly can't thank you enough. I sent you both a PM. If you don't get them, please note it here. Again, thanks so very much and you're right Jack, God will bless them!

I also have about 400 of them or higher I quit counting. My insurance mails me 200 a month and they are free and I only need to use them 1x a week. Give me your address and I can mail mine to you.. Mine are the 14" all-purpose urethral catheter x-ray opaque rubber

Kathy,

I have a complete box unused 14" french catheters that I can send you. My doctor wants me to try to go without using them. Don't worry I still have spares if I need them. Email an address to send them to and they are yours. it will help get you through while you are battling the insurance company.

In the meantime....contact Coloplast and ask them for some samples to see which is right for you...i'm guessing you use a l4" french....Here's the clear one i use......They're pretty good at sending freebee's.
