Why Diabetic Shoes?

Diabetic foot ulcers are the most common complication leading to hospitalization for diabetic patients. The shoes are designed with more room to protect your feet, reinforced heel and toe, and come in different shapes and widths to accommodate differently shaped feet. Studies show that the well fitted diabetic shoes with moldable insoles reduce the development of ulcers and sores. By starting preventative measures early, it is possible to avoid later foot complications and will enable you to maintain an independent, active lifestyle.

Specialized packaging can also be used for our at home customers to help you keep track of your medications.

How will they be paid for?

Medicare Patients: In 1996 Medicare began providing insurance coverage for Diabetic Shoes and Insoles because they work to prevent ulcers and sores - the most common complication leading to hospitalization for diabetic patients.

Medicare will provide coverage for one pair of shoes and three pair of insoles per year. Medicare will pay 80% of the price they allow and you are responsible for the remaining 20%. If you have a secondary insurance they will typically cover the cost of the co-insurance. Medicare allows a patient to receive a new pair of shoes with three pair of diabetic insoles every calendar year.
