    Ouch, that's steep. I pay out of pocket for mine, but I don't buy the name brand KY, I just get the generic for a couple of bucks.

    I think you can get gloves cheaper at non-medical places or maybe online or ebay?

    I pay a ton of money out of my own pocket to live a quality of life that Medicare seems to care less about. Try getting supplies on line, in large quantities from large distributors. It's a lot cheaper.

    I agree on the generic KY and we get our gloves at Sam's Club. I'm pretty sure we get 100 gloves for less than $10. Drugstore prices are too high. If you don't have or belong to a Sam's Club, maybe a Walmart would be your next best bet.

    You can get these supplies online at www.sportaid.com. A box of gloves is $5.99 and surgilube is $2.25. You can get ky at WalMart for a little over a dollar. I order my gloves from Sportaid by the case. If you order over $75.00 you get free shipping.

    x2. Gloves @ Sams when needed, and generic (Equate) lubricant from Walmart. I pay out of pocket for this stuff & the cost is rather minimal.

    We don't buy gloves, but we do buy lube. We get Muko, it's a box of 100 single use sized packages of lube for $9.99. It's a really good lubricant.

    edited because I read what you wrote again and realized that you're paying half that price for lube, guess I should pay attention huh?

    Surgy-lube is really good. You can get it online for about 2.50 like at southwest medical supply.

    We also get our boxes of gloves at sams and it is WAAAAAAAAAAAAY cheaper then anywhere I found. these are the cheapest I found and i did alot of research

    Online sams club sells gloves fro 1000 gloves for about $50. And www.southwestmedical.com sells surgi lube for just a little less then the other site mentioned. My husband likes flip top lids and they have those. Makes it a bit easier.
