The Diabetic Shoe Bill
Since 1993, Medicare Part B has provided partial reimbursement for extra-depth shoes and inserts for qualifying patients with diabetes. Medical experts agree that many amputations resulting from diabetes-related foot complications can be prevented by appropriate, properly fitting footwear.
To qualify for Medicare reimbursement, your certifying physician (M.D. or D.O.) must confirm that:
1.You have diabetes mellitus.
2.You exhibit one or more of these at-risk factors: Partial or complete foot amputation
History of previous foot ulceration
History of pre-ulcerative callus
Peripheral neuropathy with evidence of callus formation
3.You are being treated under a comprehensive care plan for your diabetes and would benefit from therapeutic footwear.
