In our last post, we discussed how some incontinence products are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and, in rare cases, private insurance. Now you may be wondering: Do I need a prescription to get my covered incontinence products?
The short answer is, yes.
To receive a prescription, your doctor must deem these products medically necessary for them to be covered by Medicaid or other insurance. In other words, you need a qualifying incontinence diagnosis and proper documentation of exactly what is required to treat your condition.
I can get pads or adult diapers at the store. Why do I need a diagnosis or prescription?
True, you can get some incontinence supplies over the counter at your favorite pharmacy or grocery store and even online. But it’s possible the level or severity of your condition may require additional treatment or products that are not so easily obtained. It’s best to consult with your doctor and get an official diagnosis so you can maintain or even improve your quality of life. Plus, wouldn’t it be nice to save a few bucks by getting these items at little to no cost through a qualified insurance plan?
