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.

If you need additional help contact the Foster Care Medical Team (FCMT):

  1. Dial: 1-800-562-3022 (do not include the extension when you dial this number)
  2. Stay on the line - do not say anything unless you need assistance in another language. (The system is very sensitive, so make sure there is not a lot of noise around you.)
  3. The system will tell you to say, "Dial" if you have an extension.
  4. Since you have an extension, say "Dial".
  5. Next, the system will ask if you are a "client, provider, or other". Do NOT respond to this question; just press "3" on your phone.
  6. The system will say it is transferring you and then ask you to dial the extension number.
  7. The FCMT extension number to enter is 15480.
