Ostomy supplies

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers medically necessary ostomy supplies if you’ve had a colostomy, ileostomy, or urinary ostomy. Medicare covers the amount of supplies your doctor says you need, based on your condition.

Your costs in Original Medicare

After you meet the Part B deductible , you pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for your doctor's services and supplies.

Note

To find out how much your test, item, or service will cost, talk to your doctor or health care provider. The specific amount you’ll owe may depend on several things, like:

  • Other insurance you may have
  • How much your doctor charges
  • If your doctor accepts assignment
  • The type of facility
  • Where you get your test, item, or service

Things to know
