  • I'm assuming this is an insurance plan. Doesn't her pediatrician give you a prescription for diapers?

  • You'll have to call Social Services and see who you need to contact about that. They may not pay for them.

  • I have never heard of them paying for them but I would call your case worker and ask.

  • where do you live? My son is autistic and has CAP medicaid. His cap pays for his pull ups as well as a one to one worker a certain number of hours a week. first you have to get a case manager and they can get the ball rolling for you to get the services you need for her

  • Have you seen about getting into the Medicaid waiver program? I think that's the only way you can get them, and I don't really know what the requirements are, but I worked with an agency in Chattanooga for disabled adults, and the waiver program did provide them.

  • You need to talk to a worker at the social services office. Your doctor will probably have to have a statement saying they are medically needed.
