Are Diabetics Allowed a Free Pair of Shoes?

Many people ask us if diabetics are allowed a free pair of shoes. Unfortunately, this is not true. However, qualifying diabetics with Medicare are entitled to one pair of shoes and three shoe inserts per calendar year with little to NO COST. (deductibles and co-insurance may apply).

The cost for treating diabetic complications is much higher than helping to prevent complications. These diabetic shoes can prevent ulcers and amputations by abiding by certain standards. 

Our office team can verify your insurance to determine whether you are a qualifying diabetic.
