I'm new to this group. I have short bowel syndrome with a crazy high output jejuostomy! So, after sampling these from Coloplast, I have discovered a solution to my very high output jejuostomy (I had my whole ileum and colon removed along with half of my jejunum in February 2021).
My ostomy outputs 6-8L per day. I used this for day wear and combined this with coloplast nighttime draining bags for night wear, and this solved 99.999% of al my leak and bursting bag issues.
Im desperately trying to find a supplier who works directly with state Medicaid insurance in order to get these pouches and barriers covered (in a monthly qty of each, since I can only get one pouch use per barrier, and I eat time of 2-3 days). I was having very frequent leaks and bursting bags issues (especially overnight) despite using the nighttime draining bags if the stool did not move from my stoma down the tube).
they would have to cover ostomy supplies with the insurance code A4413 I was told. I tried calling 9 different suppliers today as I found this out last minute for my sept order, and only have one sample left. If anyone at all can help (has been in this situation and managed to find a supplier who covered their high output bags - even if PA required- can post their supplier?).
In fact, it can't hurt if everyone with short bowel OR a high output Osotmy of any kind could please comment with their supplier? I'm willing to call MANY suppliers to find one that can help me since for me, these bags are medically necessary for sure. It's a constant terror to always be afraid your output will bust your bag especially in public or when you don't have any way to prevent this.
any and all help is greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!!
