My mom already has Medi-Cal and Medicare. Would she also qualify for Medicaid as well, and what’s the difference?
I’m asking because she has incontinence and I have tried to get the supplies through Medicare, but they aren’t covered, so I pay for them. The cost adds up and I’m wondering if there’s another way.
Thanks in advance,

Medi-Cal vs. Medicaid
Medi-Cal is California’s version of Medicaid, so if you’ve got Medi-Cal, you’re all set. It should cover the incontinence products up to a certain amount per month and usually through a doctor’s prescription. Medicare doesn’t cover them at all.

Hope this helps,
