Purchasing disposable incontinence products is costly. Hundreds of dollars are spent each year by patients and their caregivers on these products, including catheters. Many people ask the same question: are catheters covered through insurance? The answer could very well be YES!
There are some circumstances in which catheters may be reimbursed through your insurance: public or private plan. Because rules and regulations change, it’s best to check Aeroflow Healthcare about coverage pertaining to your insurance plan; we verify everything with the insurance company for you. You can also check with your doctor’s office to see if the staff there can provide you with any assistance; your doctor’s diagnosis is a critical first step in getting coverage.
For most Medicare plans, intermittent catheter users can be reimbursed for a maximum of 200 sterile, single-use catheters per month. The patient will need a doctor’s prescription, which Aeroflow Healthcare will work with you to collect from the physician’s office—just another service provided to our patients as part of our Catheter Care Program.
If you are on Medicaid, intermittent catheter users can be reimbursed for 120 catheters per month. Medicaid covers straight catheters, coude catheters, and catheter kits, as well as most brands of catheters with hydrophilic coating and antibacterial coating. Aeroflow can help patients with Medicaid is a primary or secondary form of insurance.
