Before You Get Supplies

To use your Medicaid benefits for incontinence supplies, you first must get a diagnosis from a doctor. Only a diagnosis from a doctor counts as proof that incontinence supplies are medically necessary for your treatment. Once a doctor has given you a diagnosis, you will be eligible for coverage of incontinence products if you have Medicaid.

After you’ve seen a doctor, the next step is to sign up online. Each month, we will deliver the supplies you need and bill Medicaid on your behalf. We also follow up with you every month to make sure the products are meeting your needs.
