I wrote a sharepost about insurance, medicare, and medicaid coverage of incontinence products that you might find helpful: http://www.healthcentral.com/incontinence/c/45/25705/insurance
Basically, there are a lot of grey areas, so I'd recommend calling your account rep and asking him or her specifically.
My mother is 95 and lives in an assisted living facility. SHe has suffered with incontinence for years but at this point does not even realize when she has gone to the bathroom and needs to constantly wear both depends and poise-- diapers and a seperate pad.
this is very expensive and I heard that Medicare will cover the cost of this and I need to find out how to go about getting this covered.
If they don't, she has United insurance. I need to find a way to help supplement the extemely high cost we are forced to incurr weekly.
Would appreciate your help.

My family member is in another state, she had a stroke and a neurogenic bladder as a result. She is on Medicare with AARP as her Medigap. She spends a fortune in incontinence products which she has to pay someone to go and purchase for her. She lives in IL. Do you know if pads etc. are covered by Medicare or even AARP. She is spending so much $$$ to keep from being incapacitated by this problem. She has to take a diuretic and it makes the problem even worse.
For some reason Medicare will cover external catheters and leg bags, which I use, but will not cover the McGuire urinal which I also use. Why they cover some items and not others....go figure!

To my knowledge, Medicare will not pay for disposable products.
However; they would pay for cloth diaper service as it was considered a non-disposable or durable medical product.
Check with your local Medicare office to find out what current policy is.
