What are

diabetic shoes?

Diabetic Shoes, sometimes referred to as Therapeutic Footwear, Sugar Shoes, or Extra Depth Shoes, are special shoes designed to reduce skin breakdown in people with diabetes.

Why do I need Diabetic Shoes?

Neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes. Neuropathy is a loss of feeling or reduced sensation that occurs in the body’s nerves.

Due to a loss of feeling, cuts, scrapes, sores, calluses, and strain can go unnoticed on a person’s feet who has Diabetic Neuropathy. Foot ulcers can develop in less than a single day, and over time, these wounds can grow and become infected, eventually leading to a full foot amputation. Diabetic shoes lessen rates of amputation by providing additional depth, comfort, and protection for a person’s feet.

Additionally, Diabetic Neuropathy can change the shape of a person's feet over time. For many, diabetic shoes provide added width and comfort that regular shoes cannot provide.

Diabetic Shoes can reduce amputations and reulcerations by over 50%.

Protection from Ulcers and Amputations

Covered by Medicare

Does Medicare cover Diabetic Shoes?

Medicare covers 80% of the cost of Diabetic Shoes; however, a patient can use a secondary insurance, such as Medicaid, to cover the remaining cost. If the patient does not have a secondary insurance, the remainder of the cost can be paid by cash or credit card, typically amounting to $60 - $65 of out-of-pocket expenses for the patient.

If the patient does not have Medicare or Medicaid, shoes can be paid for completely out-of-pocket.
