3 Easy Steps to Get Your Shoes
Check that the office has the MD or DO that manages your diabetes in our system as one of your care teams.
Verify that we have the best number to reach your doctor.
Ask that they give you a Footwear Packet and the podiatrist’s diabetic exam notes.
We will work with your doctor who manages your diabetes. If they are unresponsive after multiple attempts, we may call you to ask for assistance. Ask your MD or DO to sign the packet with your podiatrist’s exam notes and fax it to the number on the Footwear Packet (not to your podiatrist’s office).
During your appointment, we will measure your feet and conduct a thorough foot examination to assess your current condition. You may also shop for extra pairs of shoes, socks, slippers, and sandals. Please ensure that your feet are clean and that you wear socks to your appointment.
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.
