Does North Carolina Medicaid Cover Catheters?
Yes, North Carolina Medicaid offers catheter coverage as one of its many benefits for its Medicaid enrollees.
However, in order to cover your catheter supplies, they must be a medical necessity. Your prescribing healthcare practitioner may need to fill out a prescription for the number of catheter supplies you’ll need for sterile intermittent catheterization per month.
In addition to a valid prescription, North Carolina Medicaid requires an LMN, which is a Letter of Medical Necessity.
If that sounds complicated, don’t worry. Our Documentation Specialists will go right to work on verifying your insurance plan. Plus, we’ll swiftly coordinate with your doctor’s office to get any required documentation. Our goal is to make sure you receive the right catheter supplies for your needs to your door as soon as possible.
How Many Catheters Can I Receive Through North Carolina Medicaid?
North Carolina Medicaid will cover up to 200 catheters per month, depending on how many are medically necessary. Your doctor or another qualified prescribing healthcare professional who has diagnosed your need for catheter supplies will be the one to consult about how many you need per month.
You may be eligible to receive straight catheter, coudé catheters, hydrophilic catheters, or closed system catheters. However, this depends entirely on your needs. We can provide catheters from a wide range of all major catheter brands and manufacturers.
