Bolus Tube Feeding Delivery from a Gravity System

Do you provide enteral nutrition supplies to home tube feeding patients? The bFed™ System is a better enteral delivery system for both you and your patients. It has the advantages of both bolus and gravity delivery.  Better for your patients because it is easier for them to use than bolus syringes (fewer complaint calls for you) and less wasteful than gravity bags that are not reusable.

The Bolee™ Bag component of the bFed System is a 375mL multi-day reusable (multiple days) food container that works with all tube feeding nutrition – commercial formula, home made blenderized nutrition and water. Instead of your patients filling six bolus syringes at each meal, they fill one Bolee Bag and connect it to their feeding tube or bolus extension set with the Bolink™ Large Cap to deliver.

The Bolink Large Cap has a 5-inch long, large diameter tube with a clamp to control flow. There is no drip chamber to clog or excess tubing to get in the way of nutrition delivery.

HCPCS B4036

The bFed System fits under reimbursement code B4036 – Enteral Feeding Kit – Gravity. Any client that you switch  from either bolus or pump feeding kits to the bFed System can be billed under B4036.

The codes for enteral feeding supplies (B4034-B4036) include all supplies, other than the feeding tube itself, required for the administration of enteral nutrients to the patient for one day. Codes B4034-B4036 describe a daily fee rather than a specifically defined “kit.” Some items are changed daily; others may be used for multiple days.

bFed System Kit Configuration

Bolee bagThe bFed System gives you flexibility to configure your own monthly supply. The Bolee Bag is a 375mL multi-day reusable container so you don’t need to supply 30 for a monthly shipment. Most home care companies supply 10 Bolee Bags for a 30-day supply.

Bolink Large Cap

The Bolink Large Cap connects the Bolee Bag to the patient’s feeding tube or bolus extension set. The Bolink Large Cap is packaged separately from the Bolee Bag so you can determine monthly usage (they are labeled for 24-hour use).
