Can I Receive Incontinence Supplies Through Alaska's Medicaid Program?
Does Medicaid cover incontinence products? Yes! Alaska Medicaid is a state-run insurance option for adults, children, senior citizens, and individuals with disabilities living in Alaska. Alaska currently provides incontinence products for both children and adults as one of the medically necessary medical supplies under its Medicaid coverage. Under Alaska Medicaid, individuals may qualify to receive a combination of pull-ups (protective underwear), adult briefs (adult diapers), disposable underpads, bladder control pads (Poise pads), wipes, and gloves. Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover incontinence products. However, Medicare does cover catheters.
