- A diagnosis from a healthcare professional for incontinence with an underlying medical condition or disability that causes leakage, such as spina bifida, Parkinson’s disease, autism, etc.).
- An estimated amount of incontinence products you or your loved one will require every day (i.e. 10 diapers, 2 bladder control pads, 1 pull-on, etc.).
- Must be 3 years of age or older.
- Must be a Medicaid recipient in Alaska. Each individual applying for free incontinence products must be enrolled in their own Medicaid plan that covers incontinence products.
- A signed Certificate of Medical Necessity (CMN).
