Does Medicare cover closed system catheters?
If you’re interested in advanced products like closed system catheters, you may wonder if Medicare covers these supplies.
In most circumstances, Medicare covers uncoated straight catheters or coudé tip catheters with sterile lubricating jelly.
However, some people may be eligible to receive closed system catheters through Medicare coverage in some circumstances. For example, if you get urinary tract infections while practicing sterile-use catheterization (using each catheter and lubricating packet only once), you may become eligible to receive closed system catheters through Medicare if the UTIs are documented with your doctor.
