Is there any Medicare coverage for incontinence supplies?

July 25, 2018

If you or a loved one suffers from incontinence, you may need incontinence supplies such as pads or adult diapers to stay dry, clean, and comfortable. Unfortunately, if you are enrolled in Original Medicare (Part A and Part B), these incontinence supplies are typically not included in your coverage.

Medicare Advantage plans are offered by commercial insurance companies approved by Medicare and are required by law to cover everything that is included in Original Medicare coverage (except for hospice care, which is still covered under Part A). Since they are offered by private insurance companies, however, they are able to offer additional benefits that may help save money for their members.

Many Medicare Advantage plans also include coverage for prescription drugs, as well as coverage for routine vision, dental, and even hearing care. In many cases, your out-of-pocket costs may be lower with a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plan, due to lower copayments and deductible amounts.

It’s important to remember that not all plan types and benefit options may be available in all locations. You must continue to pay your Part B premium, plus any premium required by your plan, if you choose to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan.

If you are on Medicare and your products are not covered by a Medicare Advantage Plan, Rely Medical Supply can assist you with affordable and quality products to help you manage your incontinence. We have products to fit every budget level and need. Check out our online store for options that include adult pullups, adult diapers, bladder control pads, underpads, wipes, and gloves. If you have questions, our friendly and compassionate representatives are available from 8am to 5pm CT by calling toll free at (888) 529-2308.
