On July 1, 2023, the MHCP Provider website was updated with changes that are meant to improve the amount and kinds of incontinence products users have access to.
First and foremost, the Equipment and Supplies section in the MHCP Provider Manual has been updated. Now, disposable briefs, diapers, underwear, pull-ons, liners, shields, guards, pads, and garments (HCPCS T4521-T4535, T4538, T4533—T4544) will be covered up to 400 units per product or combination of products per month without requiring authorization. This means better support for individuals who need these essential items.
Additionally, underpads (T4541-T4542) will also see increased coverage, up to 100 units per month before requiring authorization. This change ensures that caregivers and recipients have better access to the necessary supplies.
These updates aim to streamline the process and make it easier for providers to deliver quality care to recipients. At APA Medical, we value all case managers and care providers’ dedication to healthcare and hope these changes will enhance your experience in serving patients.
Thank you for your commitment to improving healthcare services, and we look forward to supporting you in your mission to deliver exceptional care!
