Autism - Support Across the Spectrum Autism - Support Across the Spectrum

 At what age will insurance cover diapers? We have been using cloth but they are getting really tight on my little man and I can't afford to buy a custom stash of bigger diapers. He is 3 and just starting to recognize that he has even gone  pee or poop much less being able to recognize that he needs to in time to go potty.

My good friend has a little boy with Angelman Syndrome.  He's almost 6 and still in diapers.  Medicaid has covered diapers for him since he was 2-3 if I remember correctly.  You should be fine:)

Quoting EthansMomma2010:

 i am about to have him on medicaid and from what i have read i think it will be covered. i'm going to go to his dr asap and see if she will give us a rx. it seems like that is what is needed. i never knew how much money for "little stuff" an autistic kid could cost! holy moly!!!

Quoting darbyakeep45:

Definitely depends on your insurance and state.  Good luck mama!

I'm in mass and our insurance just covered them for my youngest. He's 3 1/2. My oldest was about the same age also, when insurance covered them. 


Sorry, I should have mentioned we have Medicaid for our boys. Good luck...

My friends insurance covered them until her dd with Down syndrome no longer needed them, I think she was 6 or 7.

I know my mom got diapers paid for by medicaid for a little girl she adopted. They weren't great diapers. Actually, they were more like those blue chux pads you put in your bed after you have a baby. I remember she would use two at the same time. But that was like 20 yrs ago. Maybe big kid diapers have improved since then.

Depends on your insurance. Ours wouldn't cover anything like that. My son is 6 and hasn't worn a diaper in almost 3 months! I'm so glad to be done with that!

we have private which i'm gonna call just to see, but he is being switched to medicaid in december which seems like is more likely to cover them.

I really have no knowledge of this. I didn't even know that insurance companies covered diapers
