Incontinence Supplies for Kids Paid for by Arkansas Medicaid

Arkansas Medicaid Pays for Diapers for Kids

Does your child have a medical need for diapers, pull-ups, bladder pads, or bed pads? Arkansas Medicaid will pay for them if your child meets a few requirements. Arkansas Medicaid will pay for $130 worth of incontinence supplies every month if your child has full services. $130 is enough to cover most children for a month’s worth of need.

 

A child with a medical diagnosis or special needs is eligible for incontinence supplies if they meet the following:

 

-Have a medical diagnosis, or several diagnoses, that are eligible. Diagnoses for Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Mental Retardation, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and more work. Failure to Potty train and Nocturnal Enuresis (Bed Wetting) are not acceptable diagnoses.

 

-Have a signed prescription from your child’s Primary Care Doctor (PCP).

 

-Child is at least 3 years old.

 

-Child has Full Arkansas Medicaid. ARKids B, also called ARKids First, does not cover incontinence supplies.

 

When you are the parent of a child with medical needs, you already have enough on your mind. Finnegan Health Services is here to help ease your daily load by taking care of as much paperwork as possible. We can’t make the doctor’s appointments, but we can handle the rest. Let us get the prescription and records, and ship the products to your door (for free).

 

Medicaid prescriptions are good for 6 months. A new prescription will also be necessary if you change your child’s size, frequency of need, or products. Finnegan Health Services will take care of this for you, but it does help if the parent or guardian communicates with the doctor.

 

Finnegan Health Services provides incontinence accessory products. Medicaid will cover gloves under a different set of limitations. Baby wipes are not covered at all by Arkansas Medicaid. Finnegan Health Services is able to provide these if your order meets certain criteria.
