    I have private insurance thru my employer who (I assume) pays more than medicaid. The supplier is more than happy to get paid, this is all they do and how they make money, it’s just the middleman...
  2. If you had stones in your bladder in the past...

    If you had stones in your bladder in the past maybe it’s kidney stones? Wouldn’t explain where exactly you’re experiencing the pain, but if sensation is a bit wonky down there maybe you could...

    yes

    My best understanding (can't clarify until offices open back up on Monday, and even then probably won't get a straight answer) is that it hasn't technically been denied. It just hasn't been approved...
  5. Getting Insurance to Actually Pay for Urologic Supplies

    Not sure if this is the right forum, but it seemed to fit best here.

    Like most of us on this site I need X number of urologic supplies every month. It's been the same supplies for the past 8-9...

    Oh, whoops, I thought 508 was the "wheelchair" 24 inch size... I just looked it up so I guess it's not. That makes it a tad more complicated.

    So I can buy a couple of these and a set of 508 wheels (I'll probably just look for a deal on some used Spinergy's on ebay). The axle is probably adjustable enough that I can set the smaller wheels...

    Embarrassingly I don’t think I even know what a spacer looks like when it comes to my wheelchair. I can’t think of a way that this could be easily swapped. How hard is it to change out a spacer?
  9. Also, is there an easy way to space a second set...

    Also, is there an easy way to space a second set of wheels a bit further out from the wheelchair frame?

    im guessing it’s not that simple. I just looked at my current tires and there’s not even...

    So if you do this the handrim ends up being a little smaller in diameter than the everyday wheels, right? Does that end up messing you up and making you slip when you’re not thinking about it?
  11. Fattest off road tires for a standard 559 wheel?

    Eventually I'm thinking about buying a spare set of wheels just for backup, but thinking maybe I can keep some big fat off road tires on them for when I go camping and whatnot.

    Anybody fit some...

    Aspirin is not a blood thinner per say. It works in a very different way from warfarin and is not comparable, nor substitutable in most cases. (Cardiologists and PCPs generally start almost...

    I've done this for pretty much all of my adult life, mostly because I detest mornings and refuse to get up 10 minutes earlier to make breakfast when I could be sleeping for those ten minutes. I...

    But what about all of the other potentially helpful sources of pain?

    I can think of multiple times over the past few days that pain has been very helpful to me.

    That's a good deal.

    I'm not in the market for a handcycle just now, but if you've got the time, I would really appreciate any photos you have of how the wheelchair holder works.

    I think intermittent fasting is probably a good thing when not done to the extreme. If you think about it our ancestors all used to undergo intermittent fasting because life in the preindustrialized...

    How do y’all go about getting pressure mapped? I’ve never had anyone offer me this and idk if it’s even available in my area.

    Mine is angled and I keep my toes about even with my knees. My chair is just a tad too tall in the front, so my feet have a tendency to slide off. If your heels are already hanging down based on the...

    Are you sure the person you were speaking too wasn't misunderstanding and telling you that you wouldn't qualify for Medi-Cal when you were asking about Medicare instead? I'm sure...

    I agree that width is very important, but for me personally, even with two degrees of camber my chair is less than 21" wide. I could drop an inch and a half off of that, but it would make minimal...

    I had a 16 inch wide chair with zero camber originally, cuz the OT assumed I’d get fat now that I wasn’t walking any more.

    From there i switched to a 13” wide chair with 2 degrees of camber. I...
