Does Florida Medicaid Cover Incontinence Supplies?
Yes, Florida Medicaid does cover some incontinence supplies in certain conditions. Florida Medicaid waiver recipients may be eligible to receive covered products including:
- Adult diapers, pull-ups, or briefs for those 21 years of age or older
- Disposable or washable bed pads or chair pads (underpads)
Additionally, waiver recipients may be able to receive enteral nutrition items such as feeding tubes, bowel management supplies, and other incontinence products.
However, this all depends upon the medical necessity of the items. A prescribing healthcare provider must complete a prescription for the amount and type of incontinence products needed. Florida Medicaid may require additional supporting documentation or pre-approval on certain items.
Also, you may have monthly limits on the number of covered incontinence products. 180 Medical’s friendly incontinence specialists are happy to help you in determining your coverage and eligibility through Medicaid of Florida.
