Anodyne Diabetic Shoes
Diabetes can be dangerous to your feet. Even a small cut can have consequences. Diabetes may cause nerve damage that takes away the feeling to your feet, making it harder to heal an injury or resist infection.
In 1993, Congress passed the Medicare Therapeutic Shoe Bill, which allows qualified persons to receive Medicare assistance for protective shoes and inserts.
Diabetic shoes and prescription inserts are intended to help prevent more
serious foot health complications that can arise as a result of diabetes.
- Poor Circulation
- Foot Deformities
- Pre-ulcerative callus formulation or peripheral neuropathy with a history of callus formation
- History of previous foot ulceration
- Previous amputation of the foot or part of the foot
If you are a qualifying diabetic, Medicare and your supplemental insurance may reimburse for all or part of the cost of your Anodyne Diabetic Shoes and prescription inserts.
