Do you have a child placed in your home who requires the use of non-sterile gloves as part of their daily care?
If the use of non-sterile gloves is part of the day-to-day care of a child placed in your home, the child's Medicaid benefits will automatically pay for 2 boxes (200 gloves) if you have a prescription from the child's medical provider. The child may be eligible for additional boxes of gloves but anything beyond the 2 boxes must have prior-approval from Medicaid.
Discuss the additional need for supplies with your child's medical provider. The medical provider will write a prescription that you can take to the pharmacy or medical supply vendor. Any pharmacy or medical supply vendor who accepts Medicaid will know how to request a prior authorization for any medication, service, or equipment.
