How To Save Money on Incontinence Products

How To Save Money on Incontinence Products

When you’re a little short on cash, the last thing you want to do is have a medical issue that you need to deal with. Even without potential hospital bills, having the supplies to take care of yourself can get pricey. That’s why you need to be smart about it.

One such issue that involves a lot of medical supplies is incontinence. Thankfully, there are ways to save money on incontinence products. We’re here to share these tips with you.

Don’t Always Go Cheap

When trying to save money, the natural instinct is to buy cheap products. This might be helpful in the short term, but it will hurt you in the long run. When it comes to cheaper incontinence briefs, they won’t be nearly as absorbent as more expensive ones. That means you’ll need to change them more often, leading to you buying more over time. Higher-quality briefs will keep you from needing to go to the store as often.

Avoid Doubling Up on Products

Sometimes, people recommend doubling up on certain incontinence products in order to achieve a higher level of protection. This is most common with incontinence briefs and pads since they are very easy to use together. However, doing this will end up costing you a lot more money. It’s better to just purchase a brief that offers more protection for a slightly higher cost than pairing them with pads.

Buy in Bulk When Possible

Since you’ll need to continue to purchase incontinence products, it’s not a bad idea to buy in bulk. You’re probably already aware of the advantages of purchasing items in larger quantities, but the upside to incontinence products is they won’t go bad on you like food will.

Just make sure the bulk packages only have the products you need. For example, there are many different types of catheters that a person can use. If a bundle of them comes with various kinds that you don’t like or can’t use, that money could go toward products you actually need.

Look for Promotions

If you keep an eye out for sales, coupons, and other promotions, your potential for savings can be astronomical. When you find a really good deal, stock up for the next few months. As long as you have plenty of incontinence products available at home, you can safely wait until the next great promotion to buy some more.

Check for Reimbursement Opportunities

If at all possible, the final way to save money on your incontinence products is to look for ways to receive a reimbursement. Many insurance plans can offer you cash back on all the incontinence-based products you’re required to buy. In some cases, you can even get a tax deduction for these products. Either way, it never hurts to check.
