    So, where do you get the best prices for these kinds of things?

    I've been buying boxes of Unisolve wipes through Amazon or a local medical company, and am still working on finding the "perfect" barrier wipe product but suspect that there are other on- and off-line places that may have better prices.

    do you not get them through your insurance? We order them with our pump supplies and everything that they don't have I order from edgepark and let them bill the insurance.

    Our pump supplier, Edgepark, carries some of these items, but as they are not prescription items, I did not even think that they would be covered under DH's policy -- thinking that they were more like glucose tabs, etc.

    I'll definitely look at DH's coverage.

    Thanks!

    yeah, you just supply your insurance info, and they may call you to ask what you need them for and you just tell them, and they'll be covered under durable medical, just like pump supplies. :)

    Mine are available through CCS Medical, but they aren't covered like DME. I still pay the full price for Tegaderm as well as Skin Tac. Worth the money to me :). It's cheaper for me, though, to order Tegaderm from American Diabetes Wholesale. I haven't done that very often, because it's just more convenient to get everything from one place, but it is cheaper.

    Those types of products have not been covered under DME under my three most recent health insurance plans. Wish they were!
