Here are a few suggestions. Some are just for short term, but if you ask each group, they may be able to point you to better, more permanent solutions:

www.ostomy.org/.../

www.180medical.com/.../

www.needymeds.org/.../64

United Ostomy Associations of America
P.O. Box 525
Kennebunk, ME 04043-0525
1-800-826-0826

Also try your local hospital's social worker team to get you local resources or if they are not helpful, talk to your primary care doctor.

Every city has different resources.

Prayers for solutions!

Many times the doctors have samples. I would ask them. Companies sometimes give supplies to patients who can of afford them.

Here is a site you can check and they offer you free samples. I know free samples isn't much but if you can get free samples from several places this is a good start. www.veganostomy.ca/.../

Osteo Group will send you supplies and the only charge is shipping for the uninsured. I too temporarily only have Part A they charge me but at a discounted rate In my eyes I am uninsured because I have no coverage for Docs and prescription meds nor medical supplies I pay about $50 or 60 a month.

I'm thinking of asking a church if they will help me Once you order them they send 2 day priority so shipping would depend on where you live Good Luck
