If you were injured at work and as a result need to use catheters for bladder management, Yukon Workers Safety and Compensation Board (YWSCB) should cover your catheter requirements.
If you are purchasing catheters for the first time, you will require a prescription from your doctor. Send the prescription along with this completed letter to YWSCB for approval.
There may be a better catheter option for you.
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 letter to YWSCB for approval.
Upon approval, take your prescription and go to one of the preferred YWSCB suppliers to purchase your catheters.
Ask your supplier to bill YWSCB directly.
