Incontinence products, like adult pull-ons, adult briefs, pediatric diapers, and pediatric pull-ups, can be costly out of pocket, especially for those living on low income. 

It’s unfortunate that these products cost so much since they are necessary medical supplies that can determine a person’s quality of life and health.

Thankfully, there are a few ways low-income individuals and families, as well as individuals with disabilities, may be able to receive them at little to no cost.

Medicaid Coverage

One of the best ways to save money on incontinence products is to be enrolled in a Medicaid or Medicaid-managed care health insurance plan. There are a few things to consider when using Medicaid as a way to get your supplies covered.

  • Each state has its own Medicaid regulations for medical supply coverage because Medicaid is run by the federal government and individual states. This means that the number and types of incontinence products you can receive will be determined by the state you live in.
  • 45 state Medicaid programs currently provide a certain level of coverage for incontinence products.
  • Medicaid recipients typically meet 1 or a combination of the following requirements:
    • Are considered low income.
    • Have COBRA coverage.
    • Are an older adult.
    • Are institutionalized.
    • Are in foster care or guardianship care.
    • Receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
    • Have special needs or disabilities.
  • You or your loved one may need to meet specific requirements to receive coverage, including:

    • Must be enrolled in a Medicaid plan that gives coverage for incontinence products.

    • Must be diagnosed with incontinence (loss of bladder or bowel control) by a healthcare provider to ensure your products are medically necessary.

    • May need a Physician’s Order, a Certificate of Medical Necessity, a copy of your medical records, or Prior Authorization from your healthcare provider (depending on the state you reside in).

Family Caregiver Grants

Family caregiver grants are available for caregivers who help their elderly or aging family members through home care. Many senior citizens develop incontinence and may need absorbent products to manage leaks, such as:

  • Adult briefs (adult diapers).
  • Protective underwear.
  • Bladder control pads.
  • Other accessories, such as underpads.

Things to note about caregiver grants:

  • Each individual state’s Department of Health and Human Services regulates which states participate and who is eligible, so coverage under these grants may differ.
  • “Caregivers” are required to be 18 years or older and need to provide care for seniors 60 years and older OR are required to be 55 or older providing care to individuals 18 and younger OR are required to be 55 and older providing care for adults between the ages of 18 and 59 who have disabilities or special needs.
  • You may be eligible for a caregiver grant if you are caring for a person of any age with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, or other neurological conditions.

Learn about these grants at the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging website.

Diaper Banks

Diaper banks are another option for low-income families or individuals who need incontinence supplies. These organizations give out incontinence products for free and can usually be found in your local area in each state.

In order to qualify to receive supplies from a diaper bank, you may need to provide proof of low income by showing that you are:

  • A Medicaid recipient.
  • Are on food stamps.
  • Have been diagnosed with incontinence.

Find a local diaper bank in your state.
