ds will be 3 in october, and is absolutly nowhere near potty training and showing no signs of it either.

How do you get diapers via medicaid? he is on medicaid now, do we need a prescription from his dr, who do we file it with? do we need a full dx label for them?

I thought that the kid had to be four to get them. I'm not positive though.

In Maine a child can get a diaper prescription at the age of two. I have a client who just turned two and is now getting diapers and wipes through medicaid. I don't know about a specific dx requirement- this child had dev.delays and some genetic issues at the time the parent got the rx. You could call the medicaid office to find out how your state works.

In our state it's age 4. I'm sure it's different in each state though.

You do need a perscription from either your kids doctor or urologist in order for Medicaid to pay for them (at least in Washington State, that's the rules for baby and adult diapers). I'm not sure about wipes, since I have been told by my insurance that they don't cover them (we use the cloth wipes mostly anyway).

Once you have the perscription, you can go to a local medical supply shop or one that delivers them to your home. I go through CCS Medical for both my stuff and Angela's stuff every month (catheters, ostomy supplies, gloves, bedpads, pull-ups and adult diapers).

Here's a list of other mail-order medical suppliers:
A-Med Healthcare
Byram Healthcare
Duraline
HDIS
Woodbury
Express Medical

Hope this helps you out!

I should mention to you that if you go to a local medical supplier, your choice of diaper brands will be limited. I found this out very quickly when I had to start getting pull-ups for Angela and Emma through insurance. We had to use Kendall Run Arounds pull-ups for a while before we switched to a mail order supplier (Angela now uses Pampers Feel and Learn pull-ups). I am thinking, though, of switching Angela to Drypers training pants, because they seem to fit her better and are not as bulky as Pampers pull-ups are. Plus, I read somewhere that they don't put as much gel absorbent stuff in their diapers or training pants, so they could be considered healthier.

from what I've been reading every state seems to have a program just varying ages. I would call the medicaid help line and find out
