Will Medicare Pay for my Diabetic or Orthopedic Shoes?

A common question asked of us is: Will Medicare pay for my diabetic or orthopedic shoes? The answer is yes, if you qualify. In order to qualify, you must meet the following:

1) Be diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus
2) Have at least one of the following conditions:
 a) History of partial or complete amputation of the foot
 b) History of previous foot ulceration
 c) Peripheral neuropathy with evidence of callus formation
 d) History of pre-ulcerative callus
 e) Foot deformity
 f) Poor circulation
3) Receive a written order AND chart notes from a physician who is treating you under a comprehensive plan of care for your diabetes.

If you meet these conditions, you are qualified for one pair of shoes and three pairs of insoles per year.

Unfortunately we are not in network with Medicare to bill for your shoes, so if you believe you qualify, we can offer you a quality referral to another local provider.

What if I don't meet these qualifications? What if I need orthopedic shoes but not diabetic shoes? This is where we can help! Your Medicare will not pay for these shoes, but we can offer you affordable prices, quality shoes, and excellent exchange policies. Many of our shoes options are available on our website here.
