There are many medical services available to help veterans, but unfortunately, they often do not cover incontinence supplies.
Incontinence supplies are often not covered as a medical need, even though they are crucial to the health and happiness of many veterans. Getting these supplies can be a challenge, especially considering the cost. The price of incontinence supplies can range from $900-$4,000 per year.
Luckily, there are some options available that can help reduce these costs.
Veterans Health Administration
The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is a government program that could help veterans get incontinence supplies. The program provides a wide range of healthcare services, including some medical supplies.
To be eligible to get incontinence supplies through the VHA, veterans first need to become a member of the program and then visit a doctor to confirm a medical need. Every situation will be different, and there may be additional requirements that need to be met in order for the VHA program to cover the supplies.

There’s great news for veterans with Medicaid: Most Medicaid plans cover incontinence supplies. Currently, 45 out of 50 state Medicaid plans provide some form of coverage for incontinence supplies. This means that veterans with Medicaid could get their supplies at little or no cost, depending on the details of their plan.
In order to use Medicaid benefits to get supplies, you will have to first visit a doctor and get a diagnosis. The diagnosis will allow an insurance company to receive official paperwork that shows a medical need for the supplies.
