Delaware & Tennessee Become First States to Provide Diapers Through Medicaid

If you or your loved one is a resident of Delaware or Tennessee and require diapers, you may now qualify to receive them through the state Medicaid programs. CMS approved Delaware and Tennessee Medicaid to provide diapers through their state Medicaid plans under section 1115 demonstrations.

The cost of diapers has risen dramatically in recent years; in 2019, the average price for a pack of diapers was $16.54, and the average cost in 2023 was $21.90. This new benefit has been approved to ensure caregivers and children enrolled in Medicaid have a sufficient supply of diapers to prevent health issues, such as urinary tract infections (UTIs) and diaper rash.
