Adult Diapers Notice

Please be advised that a permanent injunction order was issued June 24, 2011, by a Missouri U.S. District Court in Hiltibran v. Dep’t of Social Services, Case No. 10–4185–CV–C–NKL, wherein the court enjoined the Department from refusing to provide adult incontinence briefs to those MO HealthNet participants over 21 years of age on the basis that such briefs are hygiene items.

As such, if a prescriber believes that such adult incontinence briefs are medically necessary for the MO HealthNet participant, they should utilize the Department’s exceptions process for requesting authorization. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the MO HealthNet Exceptions Unit at 800-392-8030, option 2.
