I'll answer this from an insurance
perspective. Perhaps one of the other WebMD experts with a medical background

If you’ve been
doing the same thing for years and your doctor still feels it’s needed, you can
appeal your insurer’s decision to limit your use of disposable bags.
First, you can ask
for your provider's help in gathering information or collect medical journal
articles that support the treatment's use by searching journal articles with
PubMed, a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, at www.pubmed.gov.
You can use this information as part of your appeal, which both
state and federal law entitle you to. At least two levels of appeals are
available to you — an internal appeal with your insurer and a review by an
independent third party. Your insurer must provide you with written
information about how to initiate the process.
