Quick question, I ordered supplies in USD, how would that work under the government grant? My work insurance company wants to see the receipts up to the amount of the grant and they will cover any additional costs for the year.

So, for the grant, you are free to spend it wherever you like, provided you're spending it on ostomy supplies. Private insurance tends to only cover Canadian orders (at least mine does), but I've had no problem showing my insurance company that I've spent my grant money in the US - they just want to see that you've used up the grant money.

I hope that helps and I hope you aren't given any trouble.

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

I compared ostomysale.ca pricing for the items I just ordered from CanMedDirect.ca. The latter had better pricing in every instance and included free shipping.
