Affording incontinence supplies can be a huge challenge for people with lower incomes, but if you’re a Kentucky Medicaid recipient, there may be a solution: Your Medicaid benefits might cover the cost of your incontinence products.

How to Get Supplies

The most important step to getting incontinence supplies using Medicaid benefits is getting a diagnosis from a doctor. Only a diagnosis from a doctor counts as proof that your supplies are medically necessary. Once you have received an official diagnosis from a doctor, you may be eligible to get supplies and have Medicaid cover the cost.
