An Ostomy is surgery to create an opening (stoma) from an area inside the body to the outside. It treats certain diseases of the digestive or urinary systems. It can be permanent, when an organ must be removed.
An ostomy may be necessary due to birth defects, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, incontinence and many other medical conditions. An ostomy is also necessary in cases of severe abdominal or pelvic trauma resulting from accidents or from injuries sustained during military service.
Ostomy supplies are considered medically necessary for use on a member with a surgically created opening (stoma) to divert urine, or fecal contents outside the body. Ostomy supplies are considered medically necessary for colostomies, ileostomies or urinary ostomies.
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers Medically necessary ostomy supplies if you've had a colostomy, ileostomy or urinary ostomy.
