I have gotten the question several times asking about why I don’t just use my insurance to get adult diapers.  Well, there is a multi-part answer to that question.  First, the adult diapers on my insurance plan would not be free and would only be discounted, so its not like getting free adult diapers.  Second, in order for me to do that I have to buy from medical supply stores and most of the medical supply stores in my area carry adult diapers that are not to my liking very much.  Third, I would have to specifically go to the doctor for the sole reason of getting a note saying I need diapers and that my insurance should cover it (annoying).  Finally, I just prefer to spend any money I have on the best diaper I can get because I have found that saves me money in the long run.  Hopefully, that explains why I usually just buy my adult diapers from Bambino Diapers, XP Medical, or Secure Personal Care.  Plus, I like shopping online, its more hip! LOL

Incontinence really isn’t as bad as people make it out to be.  I am sure to the thought of some people, incontinence is just this thing where you just completely soak yourself or defecate on yourself all the time.  It makes it sound so horrible when you put it like that.  But, like anything in life, it can be easily managed and a positive can come from a negative.  Being incontinent and wearing diapers 24/7 completely changed my life and made me just overall a happier person.  I accept people a lot easier and don’t really hold grudges because once you realize that you, yourself, are imperfect and have flaws then you tend to see other people’s “flaws” or “differences” a little easier and accept them better.  Also, diapers have really toned me down I think and had a big relaxing effect on my life.  They help me not stress so much and just look at life from a more positive outlook…its hard to describe but it makes you feel secure with yourself.  I have also learned to look at negatives in my life and realize that typically a positive can be made from it.  So, this completely can turn your world around because once you look at a negative not just as a negative but also an opportunity to make a positive, its life changing!

Hopefully, that addressed some of your questions.  So, I am back to work and can’t wait to get off work so I can go home and get in the shower…as sad as it is, I haven’t had a shower in a day and a half.  That might not seem very long to some people but when I have had two messy diapers since my last shower – regardless, of how well I was wiped down and powdered – you still feel icky.  So, I can’t wait for my shower tonight LOL.  Then, I think we may go see a movie or rent something..

    If the big 3 (Bambino, XP Medical, or Secure Personal Care) could accept insurance I would think that they could get even more business. I’m pretty sure accepting insurance is a headace that they don’t want to deal with.

    Thank you for your post i have turned my incontinence in to as much of a positive as i can i grew up wereing diapers and i think it’s kinda odd but when i grew up i wore diapers in high school and my best friend seen it one day and i was the laughing stock of the hole school and i think its harder for a bunch of guys to under stand that its a medicle prob then it is for girls to under stand but it got better after about 6 mounths i lived a good life i never had a prob geting a girl friend and thay all ways seemed to under stand more then most of my guy friends it was kinda odd to most people that i had more friends that were girls then guy but thay seemed to not mind the fact that i wore diapers so as far as i know i think im the only foot ball player that wore diapers in that school . yours truly Kieth.

    The biggest obstacle for a diaper manufacturer such as Bambino or ABU is that the diaper is not marketed to the incontinent crowd but rather those of us in the ABDL community. The insurance company is not inclinded to pay for a diaper with a higher billing cost such as bambino when they can just pay for something of a lesser quality like depends.
    As for the last comment left on here, I believe the reason girls are so accepting of a diaper is because they wear all sorts of leak guards, pads or tampons during their life that a diaper isn’t a big deal. As a guy I can atest that the male ego tends to make idiots out of us; particularly when it involves a hormone craxed teenager.

    I can see the insurance companies not caring about quality or aesthetics. Since I am a designer, I conceder the aesthetics in everything I draw, design and wear (including my diapers)… The insurance company would probably give you a cheep itchy diaper that barely holds one wetting… and is that awful blue green (or some other nasty color).
    My insurance wont cover my diapers… but I can get a small tax break from the japanese government for wearing diapers.

    I guess it depends on your insurance carrier, but I was able to get Care’s (my wife’s) diapers covered. All that is except the Bambino and ABU diapers anyway.

    To give a short synopsis here, Care has basically out of the blue – and very ironically, given the circumstances – started bed wetting. It’s been just about a year so we’ve been going through diapers a lot. Of course she’s been to many doctors to find an answer, and that in it’s own right is very time consuming, a huge hassle and embarrassing too. None the less, she was offered a paper signed by the doctor that we had to submit to the insurance company and we’re now able to charge the diapers (including past purchases with a receipt) from XP medical, NorthShore, Secure Care…. to name a few.

    Obviously we don’t charge her cutesy diapers (Bambino, ABU), but the Abenas, Molicares, Tranquility ATN’s, and Secure X-plus that we routinely buy, are paid in full, shipping too, by our insurance.

    All in all it was an easy process, and FYI, Care’s nocturnal enuresis is diagnosed as a very rare side effect from emotional stress, i.e. social anxiety disorder and work related stress. Poor girl, we gotta find her an easier job where she doesn’t have to give huge presentations to large groups of her colleagues every week!

    Besides ordering your main diapers of choice online I’m sure, how often do you go to any medical supply store to change up how you go about purchasing diapers? Then again you never know what brands they would have in stock or any diaper of quality. Then again next time you chose to go to a med supply store, have some fun and tell them about Bambino’s in a joking tone of course.

    Can I ask you sth if you don’t mind.I wear diapers (but not 7/24) and I’m curious about incontinence..Do you mind if I ask you sth about that?

    >.< here goes.

    I read there are different types of it.Some people just can't hold their pee when they cough or so.and some of them (may be caused of the muscular problems and so..) don't have any control..I wonder what's like having no control..Do you pee all the time ( I mean every second) or every 5-10 minutes and so.Do you feel it comes.can you hold it?

    Sorry, my questions may be harsh but I wonder what it is like..Because you're happy person and you're OK with your condition I wanted to ask them..sorry if I make you upset.mail and name is fake too, sorry.

    I have a flexible health savings account and use some of that money to purchase my diapers and related supplies. While it isn’t good as having those costs covered by my medical insurance it still saves me quite a bit of money and I get to make the purchasing decisons.
