Does Colorado Medicaid Cover Catheter Supplies?
Yes, Colorado Medicaid does cover catheter supplies, including most catheter types, including straight catheters, coudé catheters, hydrophilic catheters, and pre-lubricated catheters. However, in order for Health First Colorado to reimburse, you need to have a valid prescription.
Also, if you want to get a catheter with kits of insertion supplies, Health First Colorado may require a process of prior authorization before they will cover.
Do I Need a Prescription to Get Catheters Through CO Medicaid?
Yes! Catheters are prescription-only medical supplies. Also, Colorado Medicaid does require a valid prescription in order to reimburse. So if you haven’t already, schedule a visit with your doctor or another prescribing practitioner to discuss your symptoms. You can then get a proper diagnosis and prescription.
Also, Colorado Medicaid will only cover if the prescribing physician is a Colorado Medicaid provider. You can search by your physician’s last name on Health First Colorado’s website to find out if they are a CO Medicaid provider.
How Many Catheters Will Colorado Medicaid Cover?
So, you may be wondering, “how many catheters can I get through Colorado Medicaid?” Health First Colorado Medicaid will cover up to 120 catheters per month.
If you’re receiving uncoated straight catheters (A4351) or uncoated coudé catheters (A4352), Health First Colorado will also cover up to 120 individual packets of sterile lubrication.
However, keep in mind that they will only cover as many as your doctor prescribes as medically necessary.
For example, if your prescribing physician says you need to catheterize twice a day, you will only need 60 sterile catheters per month. Therefore, in that case, Colorado Medicaid would only cover 60 catheters per monthly order.
