  • Does MediCal cover Elmiron?

    California people! Can any of you on MediCal tell me if Elmiron is covered?

    I don't know, but if they initially deny it, your physician may be able to facilitate an exception for you. I know my doctors have several times applied for exceptions to denials and in all instances the denial was reversed. Let us know when you find out.

    Warm hugs,

      I asked in some other IC forums and other patients there said they do. Yay!

        They are finding some indications of eye problems as a side effect from long term use of Elmiron so if you opt to go in it, you'll want to be sure to have regular eye examinations.

        Thanks for letting us know it's covered.

          Yes...I got a baseline exam done for this very reason. Been lucky so far and hoping injecting directly into bladder via catheters lowers the risk...
