Find out more about how Illinois Medicaid covers catheters and how you can get your catheter supplies from a reliable, highly-reviewed catheter company.
Does Illinois Medicaid Cover Catheters?
If you are enrolled in Illinois Medicaid, you may be eligible to receive intermittent catheters.
Remember, catheters are a prescription-only item. You’ll need to see your doctor, urologist, or another qualified prescribing healthcare professional in order to receive a prescription for catheters. Also, your healthcare practitioner can diagnose the issue and ensure intermittent catheterization is the appropriate bladder management program for you.
In addition, Illinois Medicaid may require Prior Authorization and additional medical progress notes.
If that sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. 180 Medical is here for you every step of the way. We’ll handle getting any documentation from your doctor that your insurance may require in order to cover your catheters. Plus, we provide samples so you can figure out which catheter from our wide variety of catheter supplies works best for your unique needs and preferences.
How Many Catheters Can I Get Through Illinois Medicaid?
After approval, you may be eligible to receive up to 200 catheters per month through Illinois Medicaid, depending upon your individual needs and your prescription.
Please note that Illinois Medicaid covers straight uncoated intermittent catheters (A4351), uncoated coudé catheters (A4352), and closed system catheters (A4353). However, they do not cover hydrophilic catheters in either straight or coudé tip (A4351H and A4352H) at this time.
