How many supplies does Medicaid cover per month?
The number of briefs, pull-ups, and other supplies you receive will depend on what is allowed by your particular state’s Medicaid plan as well as your prescription. Your specialist will let you know exactly the quantity you are eligible to receive.
I have Medicaid – so why don’t I qualify for supplies?
You should have received an email outlining why you or your child was not approved for supplies. The reason could be one of the following:
- Aeroflow Urology is not in network with your Medicaid plan, or our contract may not allow us to provide the supplies you are requesting.
- You may not meet your insurance provider’s age requirement.
- Incontinence supplies are not a covered item under your Medicaid plan.
- You or your child’s disability may not be a qualifying condition under your plan.
I submitted my information. When will I know if I’m approved?
One of our dedicated Continence Care specialists will contact you via phone or email within 1-2 business days of submitting your information. If it has been longer than this time frame, please give us a call at 844-276-5588 and we would be happy to check into your account and provide an update. Our office is open Monday-Friday 8am-5pm ET.
What about a prescription? Can Aeroflow help?
Medicaid requires a prescription in order to cover continence care products. If you do not have a prescription for you or your child, your Continence Care Specialist will reach out to your doctor directly for the paperwork.
I have Medicare. Why don’t I qualify for incontinence supplies?
Unfortunately, Medicare does not currently deem incontinence products as “medically necessary” so they do not cover supplies. However, they may cover your catheters.
