You Can Receive 200 Gloves Per Month – FREE!

Individual Providers (IPs) 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 clients. Wearing protective gloves and washing hands frequently greatly reduces the risk of spreading disease or infection.

Each client is eligible to receive a supply of 200 gloves per month, with additional gloves available by request.
