North Carolina Medicaid Offers Diaper Service

According to Whitehouse.gov, “Nearly 1 in 3 American families struggle to afford enough diapers, which can lead to serious health problems”. Not only does this issue affect families with small children, but families with older children with disabilities or disabled adults.
Often someone on a limited income or government assistance struggles with getting diapers for loved ones. The frustration of not being able to buy diapers or running out of pull-ups before the next monthly check puts a burden on a caregiver. Due to the fact this happens frequently and the cost of disposable diapers, briefs, and pull-ups are expensive and unaffordable to those on limited incomes, North Carolina Medicaid implemented a paid diaper service offering diapers to low-income recipients.

Introducing Ostomy Products


Introducing Ostomy Products


For years, Aeroflow Healthcare has offered quality medical products, equipment and services to patients across the nation. Now we are excited to announce that in addition to our already extensive list of product categories, Aeroflow will be offering ostomy products as well. Utilizing leading names in the industry such as Convatec, Hollister and Coloplast, Aeroflow’s ostomy division will provide full service assistance to patients with various types of ostomy procedures.

Patients with ostomy procedures can find that wading through the many various pieces of renewable equipment, including bags, wafers, adhesive and more, can be daunting. For patients dealing with difficult medical procedures which can require a great deal of lifestyle adjustment, managing your own supplies every month can be overwhelming. By working with a full service durable medical equipment provider, like Aeroflow Healthcare, a great deal of the stress of ostomy products can be alleviated for patients and their caregivers. This can be accomplished in a variety of avenues.

The most obvious difficulty of dealing with any renewable medical supplies would be the billing and insurance aspect. For a procedure such as ostomy, which requires supplies to be replaced daily, and replenished monthly, navigating insurance filing, copays, and supply allowable amounts can be stressful. Aeroflow Healthcare is equipped to file medical claims with most major insurances, including working with Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and most other commercial plans. Our staff can educate you on how many ostomy products you qualify for each month, ensuring that you get the supplies you need and are entitled to under your insurance, in many cases at little or no cost to you.

The other major difficulty ostomy patients face is managing your supply levels for all the various parts of managing an ostomy system. Rather than managing your own supplies, dealing with shipping, and risking running out of ostomy products, Aeroflow Healthcare can take the headache out of this process. Our trained supply staff will record what products you are using, make recommendations if desired, and even call you when you are due under your insurance for new supplies. We will then ship your ostomy supplies directly to your door, with no added fee for shipping and handling. This will allow patients to maximize not only their insurance but their personal time. Products are delivered securely and discretely to your home, nationwide.

Ostomy procedures can be a major lifestyle adjustment for both patients and caregivers, but they do not have to mean compromising your quality of life. While the circumstances requiring an ostomy cannot be controlled, the amount of effort required for patients and their caregivers can be managed. Dealing with a licensed, experienced, reputable company like Aeroflow Healthcare can take a great deal of the stress and hardship out of the process. If you or someone you know has a colostomy, ileostomy, or any other procedure requiring ostomy products, don’t delay! Contact Aeroflow Healthcare today and help get back on the road to independence and quality of life. Call us at 855-212-3211 to speak with a representative or fill out our qualify through insurance form.
