You Can Receive 200 Gloves Per Month – FREE!

Individual Providers serving Medicaid and state-only-funded clients have access to gloves as part of each client’s health benefit. Gloves must be available for use by Individual Providers (IPs) when providing hands-on personal care services to Consumers. Wearing protective gloves and washing hands frequently greatly reduces the risk of spreading disease or infection.

Each Consumer is eligible to receive a supply of 200 gloves per month (additional gloves availble by request). Consumers can access glove supplies in the following ways:

Apple Health (Medicaid) Managed Care Program Clients

Follow the instructions documented on the “How to obtain non-sterile gloves for your personal caregiver” flyer, which is included in your Consumer’s service packet.

Apple Health (Medicaid) Non-Managed Care Clients

  1. Find a Durable Medical Equipment Supplier at the Health Care Authority website
  2. Call your primary care physician
  3. Call the number located on the back of his/her Medical Services Card

State-Only Funded Clients

  1. Check with your Consumer’s health insurance to see if gloves are offered as a benefit.
  2. If gloves are not covered by their insurance, contact their case manager at the Home and Community Service, Area Agency on Aging or Developmental Disabilities Administration office.
