- Must be 3 years of age or older.
- Must be a Medicaid recipient in Wyoming. This means you and your child must be enrolled in your own Medicaid plans.
- A signed Certificate of Medical Necessity (CMN). This is documented proof from your healthcare professional within the last 6 months that your products are medically necessary.

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.
