Ohio Medicaid is a state-run insurance option for kids, adults, seniors, and people with disabilities or certain medical conditions who live in Ohio.
Can I Get Incontinence Products Through Ohio Medicaid?
Yes. If you qualify, Ohio does currently provide incontinence products for both children (ages 3+) and adults as one of the medically necessary items under its Medicaid coverage of medical supplies.
With Ohio Medicaid, children may receive:
- Bed pads.
- Booster pads.
Adults who receive Ohio Medicaid may receive:
- Adult briefs (adult diapers).
- Adult protective underwear (pull-ons).
- Booster pads.
- Bladder control pads.

Medicaid covered incontinence products are provided to Medicaid recipients through managed Medicaid plans that vary by state. Unfortunately, Medicare does not currently cover incontinence supplies.
