Foot Solutions: Your Partner in Diabetic Footwear

At Foot Solutions we want to be your trusted partner in providing high-quality diabetic footwear and orthotics. Our mission is to collaborate with healthcare professionals to ensure that patients with diabetes receive the best possible care for their feet.

Understanding the Diabetic Shoe Bill

As you know, Diabetes can lead to a range of severe foot problems, including poor circulation, peripheral neuropathy, and even amputation. To address these issues, Congress passed the Diabetic Shoe Bill in 1993. This bill allows diabetic Medicare beneficiaries to receive a pair of depth or custom-molded shoes and inserts annually, with Medicare covering 80% of the allowable costs. With supplemental insurance, patients can often access these benefits at no out-of-pocket cost.

Requirements for the Diabetic Shoe Benefit

To qualify for the diabetic shoe benefit, the following conditions must be met:

  1. Medicare Enrollment: Both the patient’s doctor and the suppliers must be enrolled in Medicare.
  2. Certification of Need: The doctor treating the patient’s diabetes must certify the need for therapeutic shoes and inserts.
  3. Prescription: The shoes and inserts must be prescribed by a podiatrist or other qualified doctor.
  4. Qualified Dispensing: Shoes and inserts can only be dispensed by a qualified individual in an accredited location.
