    cololstomy care medical or non medical?

    on monday i call a company out to get a personal care att. (trying to get more independant) everything sounded good but today i got a letter saying that they couldn't change my colostomy bag because they are a non-medical in home care service... is changing my bag a medical care if so i'm on medicare and they will pay for a pca if i have a medical need... or is this a excuse for not wanting to provide service maybe because of my age... i have found a couple of places that prefer to work with the elderly... i was going to pay the company out of pocket is anyone on medicare getting a pca paid for...
