Does Utah Medicaid Cover Incontinence Supplies?
Utah Medicaid is currently one of 45 states that offers coverage of incontinence supplies. If you have Medicaid in Utah, it could be possible for you to get adult briefs, protective underwear, or bladder control pads at little to no out-of-pocket expense.
Utah Medicaid only offers coverage for incontinence products that are considered medically necessary. This means that a doctor or physician must confirm the supplies are needed as part of the treatment for a specific condition.
