My distributor is Byram Medical. They're great but don't carry everything, even if it's on my script. I try everything. Never thought about eBay, but I have bought some great pouches from Amazon. Made in China, FDA approved, I've had great luck with them, and one variety is my absolute favorite. Amazon really plays games with their pricing-upping the price as products become popular. Annoying. Here in NYS, I've see brick and morter shops sell bags for as much as $60, for ten. I sometimes ask my rep the prices of things, they all run at about $50 per 10 bag box, OH you get free shipping if you buy more than $50. GEE. Must try ebay, thanks for the tip.
I am blessed with excellent health coverage. I have no deductible and my ostomy supplies follow the same guidelines as Medicare, although I'm not on Medicare yet. I order more than I need every month and bring extra to my ostomy group. Someone mentioned ostomy groups as a source for product. Mine is fantastic. Tables full of product, we bring shopping bags and 'shop' around the tables as we chat. In the last year, I've prpbably got over $500. in 'free' product. As mentioned most of us walk in with supplies, so we give and get what we need. Yearly, my group donates several 'tables' of supplies to ostomy charities. Good, my next meeting is getting 4 bottles of M9's. My rep keeps sending me two bottles at a time. I rarely use M9's. My point, if you have generous insurance, order up to yout allotment, and donate the rest, or send to people on this site who need it.
