One in four Americans with diabetes will develop potentially serious foot problems related to diabetes. However, proper footwear can help diabetic patients avoid unnecessary complications.
We participate in the Medicare Therapeutic Shoe Program. Medicare provides for coverage of shoes and inserts because custom fit footwear is necessary for the comfort and overall health of the diabetic patient.
*If you are diabetic and qualify under medicare guidelines for diabetic shoes, Medicare may provide you with:
- One pair of extra depth shoes annually and Three pair of inserts.
The shoes are carefully measured to accommodate any deformities and specific needs of the foot in order to prevent ulcerations.
