Finding Low Cost Ostomy Supplies?

My health insurance is limiting what I can get a month. I have a permanent ileostomy and because the muscle around the stoma is not flat, it causes me to leak output. I have to change everyday and apply an eakin seal for added protection. I have made an appeal to the insurance and was denied my 30 day supply. I am going to appeal again, but I want to see what other options I have to get the supplies I need. They are so expensive. I need help. Desperate!

Hello
I am so sorry for your limitations. Please see if your doctor can write you a RX, and fax it to your insurance company, along with a note of your condition. I have had a illeostomy for almost 28 years. I too, have struggled with leakage.

I have tried almost everything. I have the most luck with activelife covex one piece pouches from ConvaTek. I also have much less problems with a elastic ostomy belt. Stomahesive past skin barrier and powder worked much better for me than the barrier strips. I hope this helps. Blessings! Ida
