Qualifying patients are eligible for one pair of extra-depth shoes and three pairs of inserts every calendar year.


Since 1983, 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: 
  • You have diabetes mellitus
  • 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
    • Foot deformity
    • Poor circulation
  • You are being treated under a comprehensive care plan for your diabetes and would benefit from therapeutic footwear.
