Can I Receive Incontinence Products Through Pennsylvania Medicaid?

Pennsylvania Medicaid does cover absorbent incontinence products as a benefit. Covered products could include:

  • Booster Pads,
  • Adult Protective Underwear,
  • Bladder Control Pads, Or Even
  • Adult Briefs (Adult Diapers). 

Pennsylvania Medicaid will only cover incontinence supplies if they are considered medically necessary to treat your condition. A licensed physician must confirm that you have incontinence and need incontinence products as part of your treatment. In some cases, Pennsylvania Medicaid may need to pre-approve your supplies before you can receive them.

What Is Pennsylvania Medicaid?

Pennsylvania’s Medicaid program, also known as “Medical Assistance”, provides comprehensive healthcare coverage for vulnerable populations and people with limited incomes. Historically, Medicaid was only available to narrow groups, such as low-income children and adults with disabilities.  But in 2015, Pennsylvania adopted Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Now, children and adults can qualify for coverage based solely on having limited income.  Medicaid’s broad coverage ensures access to care so people of all ages and abilities can live healthy and full lives. 

To be eligible for Pennsylvania Medicaid, you must be:

  • A resident of the state of Pennsylvania,
  • A U.S. national, citizen, permanent resident, or legal alien, in need of health care/insurance assistance,
  • Whose financial situation would be characterized as low income or meager income.

You must also be one of the following:

  • Pregnant, or
  • Be responsible for a child 17 years of age or younger, or
  • Have a disability or a family member in your household with a disability.
