Unfortunately they will not pay for that my dear. I have MS and had asked them if they would pay for the bracelet and they said Medicaid does not pay for that as it is not a prescription. Sorry to hear about your son, I hope he will be okay. I had to order an id bracelet through the mail and it cost me $30.00 for a silver/metal bracelet, the gold cost more. If you have a local supermarker that has a pharmacy, they should have some of those placecards with the bracelets/neclases on display for you to take home. Good luck.
