How to Receive Incontinence Supplies Through Colorado Medicaid
Colorado Medicaid is a healthcare benefits option for adults, children, and individuals with disabilities living in Colorado.
Colorado currently provides incontinence supplies for both children and adults as one of the medically necessary items under its Medicaid coverage.
Under Colorado Medicaid, individuals may qualify to receive a combination of pull-ons (protective underwear), briefs (adult diapers), underpads, bladder control pads (Poise pads), barrier cream, and gloves. Supplemental products such as barrier cream and gloves can make managing incontinence easier, especially for caregivers.
Medicaid-covered incontinence products are provided through managed Medicaid health plans that vary by state. Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover incontinence products. However, Medicare does typically cover catheters.
