Protect your Wallet from the Unexpected Leak™
Save with Funding Sources for Incontinence
In addition to the methods of saving listed above, there are ways to reduce your expenses through government-funded programs. You’re probably wondering if MediCare or Medicaid cover incontinence supplies. Well, let us answer your question. Original Medicare (Parts A & B) does not cover incontinence supplies, but you may get some supplies covered if you have a Medicare supplemental plan. Some Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans offer enhanced benefit options for products and services not covered by Parts A & B. On the other hand, Medicaid does in fact cover incontinence supplies in most, but not all, states. As Medicaid is a state-run health benefit program, coverage and benefits do vary by state. If you do qualify for Medicaid, your best method of action is to contact your state Medicaid office to find out what coverage you’re eligible for. To learn more about Medicaid, click here.
- You may also be able to take advantage of tax deductions for incontinence supplies. As incontinence supplies can be deemed as medical expenses if they are needed to relieve the effects of a particular disease, you can deduct these expenses on your income tax return. However, always consult your tax professional or the IRS to see if this option is available to you.
- Did you know TENA products are covered by Flex Spending Accounts? Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) are optional pre-tax spending accounts offered through employer healthcare policies that help consumers pay for their healthcare related costs, like incontinence products. It’s actually quite easy to use your FSA on your favorite TENA products. To find out how, learn more here.
- TENA offers lots of great ways to take advantage of funding programs and we encourage you to read on!
As you can see, the potential savings on incontinence products are quite vast. Whether you take advantage of your local retailer’s loyalty program, snip the occasional coupon or qualify for government subsidies, there is a method of cutting costs that is right for you. But it’s important to know yourself and your leak in order to make the best possible decision. So, if you leak often or on occasion, be sure to reference our savings guide. And remember, even though TENA helps protect you from the Unexpected Leak™, you should also make a plan to protect your wallet, as well.
