Individuals on Social Assistance and adults with Disabilities have access to Health Services & can request catheters via their doctor using the Ostomy, incontinence and catheterization supplies application form.
Ask for samples of SpeediCath® catheters*. Simply click here "Free SpeediCath Samples" to order.
Talk to your doctor - ask for a prescription for SpeediCath® catheters. SpeediCath® catheters are single use only so the prescription should be for the number of times you need to catheterize daily, typically 4-5 catheters per day (one for every time you need to empty your bladder).
Ask your doctor to complete and sign the Coloplast Intermittent Catheter Letter of Recommendation. Simply click on the letter on this page, download the letter and send it to your doctor. This letter outlines the issue(s) you are having and why you need to use SpeediCath®.
Submit the prescription and Support letter to your case worker for approval
