Diabetic Shoe Program

Medicare provides coverage for diabetic therapeutic shoes for some patients with diabetes. The goal of this coverage is to prevent foot complications for those diabetic patients at higher risk.

There are several criteria that must be met in order to qualify for this benefit. Your podiatrist will be able to discuss this with you. Medicare approved diabetic shoes can be supplied and fitted by any podiatrists at Ankle + Foot Center. The medical doctor managing your diabetes will also need to certify that he or she is treating you for diabetes and the shoes are a necessary preventive measure for your feet.

After an evaluation of your feet your doctor will be able to discuss the type of shoe that should be appropriate for you.
