Medical Supply Incorporated is a company located at 10 Poulson Ave, Essington, Pennsylvania 19029. We provide incontinence supplies, catheters and wound care for people with Medicaid, Medicare, Community Health Choices and Manage Care Organizations.
Medicaid provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. Medicaid is administered by states, according to federal requirements. The program is funded jointly by states and the federal government.
Medicare is a national health insurance program in the United States. It provides health insurance for Americans aged 65 and older. It also provides health insurance to younger people with some disability status as determined by the Social Security Administration.
Medicare is divided into four Parts. Medicare Part A covers hospital (inpatient, formally admitted only), skilled nursing (only after being formally admitted to a hospital for three days and not for custodial care), and hospice services. Part B covers outpatient services including some providers’ services while inpatient at a hospital, outpatient hospital charges, most provider office visits even if the office is “in a hospital,” and most professionally administered prescription drugs. Part D covers mostly self-administered prescription drugs. Part C is an alternative called Managed Medicare by the Trustees that allows patients to choose health plans with at least the same service coverage as Parts A and B (and most often more), often the benefits of Part D, and always an annual Out Of Pocket spend limit which A and B lack. The beneficiary must enroll in Parts A and B first before signing up for Part C.
MSI is able to handle all patient catheter, incontinence supply and wound care needs. Our products restore consumers’ confidence and the ability to engage in activities outside of their homes. MSI has been helping people find practical solutions for their incontinence and urological supplies since 1994. We work with care managers, physicians, and insurers to make sure the patients get the correct products for their individual situations.
What items do MSI supply?
For several years now the diaper has evolved. We all knew that the mighty diaper is something that protects us from the accidents brought about by incontinence. Since diapers were in existence, manufacturers have called them differently. This contributes to the ever-growing confusion of providers and consumers alike. So which is which?
DIAPERS/BRIEFS: briefs are diapers with side tabs, whether tape or velcro, best used by chair bound and bed bound patients for ease of change.
PULL-UPS, Underwear and Pull Ons: call it either one or the other, both of them are considered protective underwear, characterized by super elastic waistbands that you can pull from ankle the waist. Great for ambulatory, active people.
CHUXS, UNDER PADS, BED PADS, BLUE PADS: these are the items that go on top of chairs, mattresses and couches so they don’t get soiled. They come in different sizes and diffident absorbency applications.
