What is Medicaid?

Medicaid is a state-funded insurance program that offers coverage for low-income adults, children, pregnant women, senior citizens, and people living with disabilities. You can learn more by visiting the Medicaid website.

What are Disposable Underpads?

Disposable underpads with adhesives are helpful medical supplies that are commonly used for urinary incontinence treatment. Underpads are designed to protect mattresses and furniture. They are commonly used for absorbing urinary leaks or catching fecal incontinence spills. Bed underpads are perfect for moderate to heavy incontinence and allows for a better night’s sleep by keeping the bed dry.

Can I receive underpads or diapers through Medicaid?

Yes, Medicaid provides incontinence products to eligible individuals. Medicaid covers incontinence supplies when prescribed by a physician for use in chronic pathologic conditions that cause incontinence to the insured individual. These medically necessary items include adult diapers, protective underwear, disposable bed underpads, bladder control pads, and/or reusable underwear.
