Does medicare cover the cost of disposable briefs?

My 80 year old mother is becoming incontinent and is needing to wear disposable briefs "Adult Disposable Diapers"

But she can't cover the cost of the Adult Disposable diapers on her own and I've been paying for them myself.

Will medicare or some other program cover the cost of my mom's disposable adult diapers?

Medicare doesn't cover the cost of disposable adult diapers. But medicaid does to an extent.

It's also possible that you could be reimbursed by the state for the cost of the disposable adult diapers.

Your mother would need to get prescription from the doctor before they would be covered by insurance or medicaid.
