Will my insurance cover intermittent catheters?

The majority of US healthcare insurances do consider catheters to be a covered item, provided there is medical necessity. Medicare covers this under part B of your insurance, not part of the prescription drug plan, part D. Most commercial insurance plans cover catheters under the major medical part of your insurance benefits, rather than your drug prescription benefits. If your insurance does not cover catheters, there are companies where you can purchase your catheters out-of-pocket.
