Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
here are answers for you
Original Medicare (Part A), does not cover incontinence supplies such as adult diapers for any condition while living independently or in assisted living
Medicare Part B - does not cover adult diapers, however, will cover other incontinence products like external urinary collection devices and disposable catheters for intermittent, self catheterization when coverage criteria are met and the individual or caretaker can perform the procedure.
Medicare Part C - can cover adult diapers, however, this depends on the plan. Part C (Medicare Advantage) plans allow you to choose to receive all of your healthcare services through a provider organization. These plans may help lower your costs of receiving medical services, or you may get extra benefits for an additional monthly fee. You must have both Parts A and B to enroll in Part C. Coverage for adult diapers and other disposable incontinence products are provided to members under select Medicare Advantage PPO plans.
