I'm on Medicare. I need wafers. Who can I order wafers thru that won't make me pay up front, & hopefully get reimbursed by Medicare? Thanks. I can't seem to remember who I've been ordering from, and they never followup with me. Thanks so much!

I also use Edgepark. I got a litte pissed at them the last time I ordered. I have a commercial BC plan as primary and Medicare as secondary and they required a $60 copay up front. That has never happened before. I never have had to pay anything for my supplies with two insurances. Not sure if policy changed or what but I cancelled my order after I paid and thought about it. They seem to have outsourced their call center and I cannot understand anything they say when they call me or I call them. Not sure I will go back to them. They have done well up to this past year. May try Liberator Medical. Have not decided.

My insurance cover 80% and I have to pay 20%, yesterday I made an order which they say said I have to pay $62.

today I checked my account, the supplies already out for delivery, this is what I love about!

I have Medicare and another insurence, I go through a local drug store and they order my supplies. I just sign the paper and pick them up. All I had to do was get my Dr write a precription for them and I don't have to pay anything. I call in what I need and they have them ready the next day. Best wishes and stay safe

Hi Pup does your supplemental plan not pay your  Medicare Deductible?

No, It does not. That plan ended a few years ago. For those already eligible for it at that time, it continues. That was the F plan. Now all that is available is the G plan which does not cover Medicare deductible but cover thes same once you meet the deductible. It is their way of spending a little less money.

Contact the company that sells ostomy supplies and tell them what you need. Give them your MediCare info. And, then your supplies are paid. 
Ask the seller what they need in for them to pay. 
Hope this helps.
