Texas Medicaid and Incontinence Supplies: How to Get Products

Texas is among the 45 states that currently provides coverage for incontinence supplies.

How to Get Supplies

The first step to using Texas Medicaid benefits for incontinence supplies is visiting getting a diagnosis from a doctor or physician. A diagnosis from a doctor is required in order for the incontinence supplies to be considered a medical necessity. Once you’ve been officially diagnosed, you’ll be eligible for coverage of incontinence supplies.
