Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL)
Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) assists Albertans with a long-term disability, chronic illness or terminal illness, in maintaining independence in their community. AADL provides funding for basic medical equipment and supplies to meet clinically assessed needs.
Funding is provided for those aged four or older with moderate to severe, unresolvable daily urinary and/or bowel incontinence (medically recognized as unresolvable by the appropriate clinician).
To be eligible for funding, clients must first be clinically assessed by an AADL authorizer.
AADL offers three categories of coverage for intermittent catheters:
M326 Intermittent catheters - pre-lubricated / hydrophilic
M328 Intermittent catheters - plastic
M381 Intermittent catheters - plastic / coudé tip
