Purchase of custom molded shoes, shoe corrections, and shoes that have an attached brace requires prior approval. HFS does not pay for corrective shoes that can be bought from stock at a store. The request for prior approval must include the age of
the client, the diagnosis, and an estimated cost. The decision on the request for prior approval must be made within 30 days.
