StrideCare Footwear

The Best Solutions for Your Diabetic Footwear Needs

Taking control of your diabetic foot care is essential for maintaining an active lifestyle and overall quality of life. A big part is having comfortable, durable, and stylish shoes that fit correctly and meet your unique medical needs.

At StrideCare, we understand the challenges people living with diabetes have in finding the right footwear. We’re here to lend a helping hand every step of the way. As the largest multi-specialty medical network in the region, we provide exceptional customer service with a friendly and caring approach—one sole at a time.

What Is Diabetic Footwear?

Problems with the feet and toes are common complications of diabetes. In fact, diabetes is responsible for over 50% of all foot amputations in the United States. Over time, diabetes can lead to nerve damage, making it difficult to feel foot irritations, soreness, or infections. On top of that, reduced blood flow can lead to wounds that heal slowly.

Are you one of the many Americans impacted by diabetes-related foot complications such as nerve damage, poor circulation, skin changes, calluses, and foot ulcers? If you are a candidate for diabetic footwear, our expert providers can prescribe custom inserts and special diabetic shoes. These are designed to alleviate pressure and prevent the development of painful pressure points, blisters, and sores.

StrideCare Footwear will fit and cushion your feet while providing additional support to the ankle, arch, and heel.

Requirements for Diabetic Footwear

If you require diabetic footwear, it’s important to be aware of Medicare’s strict requirements. Generally, Medicare covers up to 80% of these services. Any balance will be sent to your secondary insurance if applicable.

Medicare requires a signature from your PCP or Endocrinologist to verify a recent diabetic check-up (within the past six months). If you see a nurse practitioner or physician assistant, an MD or DO must sign the paperwork.
Medicare requires us to evaluate the fit of your shoes and inserts, so you must come back for a fitting. We ensure your shoes fit properly as you try them out in the office. We’ll also guide you how to carefully break in your brand-new shoes. If there are any issues with the fit, we’ll reorder your shoes and/or inserts. It’s as simple as that!

Key items needed from your podiatrist and MD/DO that manages your diabetes:

A prescription for all required diabetic foot items – Our many StrideCare podiatrists have the foot expertise you need and can assist with a prescription for diabetic footwear if medically necessary.
An in-person appointment – Attended within the last six months at your MD/DO’s office who manages your diabetes.
A Statement of Certifying Physician – Completed by the MD/DO treating your diabetic condition, signed within the last three months.
