Virginia Medicaid Requirements for coverage of Incontinence Supplies

In order for Virginia Medicaid to cover incontinence supplies, the supplies must be first considered medically necessary. This means that a doctor must confirm that you need incontinence products. The doctor will diagnose your type of incontinence and write an order for the most appropriate products.

Virginia Medicaid sometimes needs to pre-approve incontinence supplies before they can be received. This means that you cannot submit claims for reimbursement after you’ve received supplies.
