Can You Get a Prescription For Incontinence Supplies?

Covered supplies must be “medically necessary.”

Now that you know incontinence products could be covered by Medicaid, you’re probably wondering how to go about getting them. Because covered supplies must be medically necessary, you need to get a prescription, or more accurately, a diagnosis from a doctor.

Can you get a prescription for incontinence supplies?

Not A Traditional Prescription

While a doctor does not provide a “prescription” for incontinence supplies, they might provide a diagnosis. This is the documentation in your medical record indicating that incontinence supplies are medically necessary. Medicaid and some private insurance providers cover incontinence supplies, so you can get what you need at little to no cost.

Have You Been Using Incontinence Supplies Without A Diagnosis?

If you answered yes to the question above, there are some excellent reasons that you should still seek an incontinence diagnosis:

  • To better understand the cause of your incontinence.
  • To have a treatment plan which could help relieve symptoms.
  • When a doctor confirms that your supplies are medically necessary, your insurance plan may cover the cost of all future purchases.

Seeking Help

You’ve decided you want to talk to a doctor and get an official diagnosis. Now what? If you don’t currently have a primary care physician, getting a diagnosis is still simple to do. Here are some options:

  • Find a primary care physician through your insurance. Many insurance providers have online resources to help you find a doctor in your area.
  • Speak to a doctor online or over the phone. Many services allow you to speak to a doctor from the comfort of your own home.
  • Go to an urgent care facility such as Patient First. You will be able to walk in at any time and be seen by a doctor who can help you.
