Does Medicare Cover Incontinence Supplies?

When people with Medicare realize how much incontinence products can cost, they ask an obvious question: Does Medicare cover incontinence supplies?

Medicare's coverage of incontinence supplies

Does Medicare Cover Incontinence Supplies?

Unfortunately, Medicare does not currently offer coverage for any absorbent incontinent products. This means that products such as bladder control pads, adult briefs, diapers, pull-ons, and others all must be paid for through other means. Because Medicare is a national program, there is no difference in Medicare coverage between each state.

Although Medicare doesn’t cover absorbent incontinence products, there are non-absorbent urological options that Medicare does cover. Products like external catheters can be used to manage incontinence needs, and these could be covered by Medicare. The best way to determine if an external catheter could work for you is to speak with your doctor.
