Q: What is needed to get coverage?
A: A qualifying diagnosis and a prescription from your doctor stating how many times a day you catheterize.*
Qualifying diagnosis are permanent urinary retention, and permanent urinary incontinence
****Medicare defines permanent as a period expected to last over 90 days
** As of 2011 we now also need documentation from your "medical record" or your Dr. Chart notes inorder to order supplies. This must be reobtained on an annual basis.
We can send 1 catheter for how many times a day you catheterize; i.e. if you catheterize 5 times a day, we can send 150 catheters (the max in a month is 200 or 7 times a day). You are also able to order 1 lubricant per catheter.
