Intermittent catheters are essential durable medical equipment (DME) used by individuals living with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D), urinary incontinence and serious bladder impairment. Catheters can assist in diminishing the threat of serious urinary tract infections and their potentially life-threatening impacts. It is critical that you have access to catheters best-suited to your needs, lifestyles and functional capacities. Unfortunately, Medicare coverage for this equipment is extremely restrictive, paying only for certain catheters when the recurrence of infections is demonstrated.
People living with an SCI/D, caregivers and health care professionals are invited to join us for this webinar to discuss the availability of today’s intermittent catheters under Medicare and learn about the full range of catheter types, both open and closed systems, taking into account medical need and safety.
