Cure Catheter Insertion Kit

Cure® Catheter Insertion Kit

Catheter Kit or Insertion SuppliesThe Cure® catheter insertion kit contains a nonstaining BZK wipe, one packet of lubricating jelly, one pair of ambidextrous gloves, a collection bag with a universal connector, and an underpad.

Catheter kits contain sterile insertion supplies in order to maintain complete sterility while performing intermittent catheterization, thereby reducing the incidence of urinary tract infections (UTIs). 

This catheter insertion kit is also called a universal catheter kit because it pairs with any type of catheter for a catheter to create a system for catheterization with sterile insertion supplies.  The universal connector in Cure’s kit attaches the collection bag directly to any brand or type of catheter with a funnel end. 

Catheter kits or catheter insertion supplies are indicated for individuals with a history of or at risk of developing urinary tract infections (UTI).  Sterile insertion supplies are needed by pediatric catheter users who are catheterized by different individuals during the course of the day, and therefore at greater risk of developing a UTI than an adult who catheterizes himself or herself solely.  For example, a school aged child who is catheterized by a school nurse, parent, home health nurse, or other caregiver is at greater risk of developing a UTI due to numerous individuals performing the catheterization procedure. 

Similarly, sterile insertion supplies are universally covered by insurance for individuals residing in nursing facilities.  Sterile insertion supplies are also generally covered for immunosuppressed patients because of the grave consequences of a urinary tract infection for such individuals. 

Sterile insertion supplies or catheter kits are also generally covered for individuals with a recent history of UTIs.  Coverage criteria for sterile insertion supplies vary among health insurance plans.  In order to determine if you qualify, we can verify insurance eligibility, coverage requirements and review your medical documentation, such as recent chart notes, urodynamic study, and urinalysis lab results.
