Updates to Incontinence Creams and Washes

November 1, 2019

Effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2020, incontinence creams and washes require authorization and are no longer restricted to recipients under 21 years of age. Products on the List of Contracted Incontinence Creams and Washes are reimbursable with an approved Treatment Authorization Request (TAR) or Service Authorization Request (SAR) for recipients 5 years of age or older, effective for dates of service on and after January 1, 2020.

Updated manual pages and the updated List of Contracted Incontinence Creams and Washes will be released in a future Medi-Cal Update.
