Our local drug emporium sell the medium Tenas super, they are about 18.00 for 30 of them. They work great with an insert.

cheaper diapers are not allways the best way to go you need to figure out how many diapers you go through with your current Tranquility ATn brand in 24 hours. cheaper diaper will more then likely require more changes.

Premium diapers like xp medicals level 4 or dry 24/7's or northshores premium diapers my cost more per diaper but will require less changes thus may save you money over all

I can usually go 6-8 hrs with atn's. Sime other cheapers would last 4hrs.

ATN'S are the best most insurance will reimburse and depending on your state your Medicaid may not pay for even those, in most states ATN'S are to good a quality diaper for Medicaid, yes they do not care if you have to change twice an hour all day long, this becomes a problem for those of us with Co morbid physical disabilities.cheaper diapers are out there such as first quality and wings but you will regret the purchase of same , they save money in the short term the long term decline in your dignity , social activities, the cost of destroyed clothing and furniture is a bad mix, as a long term IC I strongly caution you to dig deep and keep at least an ATN level of protection.

I lived in indiana and i found a vendor that actually worked with me to get the Atn's. At first he gave me the tranquility select, but he was able to haggle indiana medicaid (H.I.P plus) to give me a better diaper. It was literally a 5c per diaper difference. Reason i got them is because with the selects i needed a 15c/pad booster. They saved 10c a diaper by going atn, plus i used less. The selects i needed 4-5 a day. Atns were 3-4 max. Company i used was HPDinc. Good for indiana goers. Sadly they dont work with illinois medicaid.

If you need a supplier for Medicaid shoot me a PM , I have one of the few Medicaid billing companies for ATN, because so many places don't pay for them , few places will waste there time actually billing for them only to get denied. I did not know Illinois still paid for them that makes three states that still cover them.

If you can find them, leaders, walgreens generics might have the better price though depending on your needs... were the atns greatly above your needs, bellow? about right? If you can shop online, you can get some pretty good deals on first quality ib briefs which work pretty well and compare well to the tranqs in my experience.

Atns held everything fine. But some of the generics are so thin they leak.

I recommend getting some first quality ib briefs then. I found they at least for me held as much as atns in most cases. You can get them online a case is usually about 45 for 72 (L)
