Does Texas Medicaid Cover Intermittent Catheters?
Yes, Texas Medicaid may cover your catheter supplies if they are medically necessary. In other words, your Medicaid of Texas insurance plan will require a valid prescription on file from a qualified healthcare provider.
In addition, if you need closed system catheters or catheter kits, they may require additional documentation. If that sounds confusing, don’t worry. 180 Medical’s insurance experts can handle getting any necessary documents or authorization that your Medicaid plan requires.
How Many Catheter Supplies Can I Get Through Texas Medicaid?
Currently, based on Texas Medicaid guidelines, you may be eligible for up to 150 intermittent catheters per month. This is enough for self-catheterization 5 times per day.
However, this will entirely depend on your prescription and individual needs. For example, if your doctor prescribes 30 catheters per month, then you will only be eligible to receive 30 catheters per month through your Texas Medicaid plan.
