  • Getting the medication at home

    Hi there, my wife has recently been diagnosed w/ IC. We've been struggling to find a way to get the medicine & equipment to do this procedure @ home because it's $50 every time we have the doctor do it. So if she goes in twice a week, we spend $100. I'm thinking it would be cheaper to do it at home. We have Blue Cross Blue Shield. Anyone had any luck w/ getting the stuff to do this at home because the doctor's office says they can't give us the stuff and our insurance says compound prescriptions aren't covered. Any help would be appreciated!

      The medication needed is 4cc of Heparin, 10cc lidocain, and 3cc sodium bicarbonate, and it's for interstitial cystitis.
