We need to get some sort of toilet splash guard on account of Charlie's tiny "stuff" that does not point down, but straight out. The splash gaurds on toddler toilets just aren't high enough anymore. I found a splash guard through a medical supply company, but it is 90 bucks. Is this the sort of thing I could ask my doctor to write a prescription for so insurance would pay for it?

Can't hurt to ask.. I turn Peyton around on the toilet ( facing the tank) gives more room for the pee. Katrina

Yep, doctors write a script, then you bring it to your medical supply company and they submit it to the insurance company.

but it may depend on your coverage......and what it goes under. We get only $2500 for durable medical equipment..... per kid per 3 year so we choose to use it on the adapable strollers for the kids...... I however do not know where that would fall in our policy...... but I know they would not pay for the toilet chairs for the kids till they were 100 lbs...... that was why Eric and I built our own

And I really know that it would be no issue with our medicaid coverage....call dr...get script go to approved upply store and order.....99% likely it is covered...... but with our regular first...... I would have to check (and irony or irony our two coverages are not served by the same upplier which make life difficult

Good luck!
