Modernizing public coverage for intermittent catheters and related supplies
Over the last year, SCIO has been working with over 100 people with an SCI and committed stakeholders to introduce a modern way of facilitating public coverage for intermittent catheters and other related supplies. SCIO’s steering committee submitted recommendations to the 2020 Ontario Fall Budget last week to advance our efforts. While we hope this facilitates a positive impact, we must continue to inform and provide expertise to policymakers on the importance of bladder supplies and the consequences when the appropriate supplies are not prescribed or affordable.
