Does North Carolina Medicaid Cover Incontinence Supplies?
Yes, North Carolina Medicaid features incontinence product coverage as one of its many benefits to Medicaid enrollees.
However, in order to cover your incontinence supplies, they must be a medical necessity. Your prescribing healthcare practitioner may need to fill out a prescription for the amount and type of incontinence products. In addition, they may require additional supporting documentation or pre-approval before we can ship your first order of incontinence supplies to you.
All North Carolina Medicaid recipients have access to protective underwear, diapers, and underpads. Waiver recipients are eligible for additional products, such as enteral nutrition, bladder control pads, and more.
How to Get Your First Order of Incontinence Supplies
First of all, it’s important to visit your doctor to get a proper diagnosis of incontinence and make sure this is the issue that needs treatment. Next, after determining your treatment plan and any other necessary course of action, your doctor will need to write out a prescription to show these are necessary to manage your urinary or bowel incontinence.
