Can I Receive Incontinence Supplies Through Virginia Medicaid?
The Virginia Medicaid Program is a state-run health insurance option for adults, children, senior citizens, and individuals with disabilities living in Virginia. Virginia currently provides incontinence products for both children and adults as one of the medically necessary items under its Medicaid coverage. Under Virginia Medicaid, children may be eligible to receive diapers, pull-ups, and gloves.
Adult Medicaid recipients may qualify to receive a combination of pull-ons (protective underwear), briefs (adult diapers), disposable underpads, bladder control pads (Poise pads), and gloves. Gloves can help caregivers when assisting with changes. Unfortunately, wipes are not covered by Virginia Medicaid. Your coverage of certain medical equipment will be dependent upon your particular Medicaid benefits. Check your eligibility for coverage with our quick and easy 2-step form.
