Diabetic Shoe Program

DIABETIC SHOE PROGRAM IN RICHMOND, VA

The Medicare Therapeutic Shoe Bill is available to diabetic Medicare patients, allowing them to get specialized shoes and orthotics. In addition, MOST COMMERCIAL carriers also cover diabetic shoes and inserts.

WHY DO I NEED DIABETIC SHOES?

Therapeutic shoes are made to accept custom-fitted diabetic insoles and promote a normal gait. The shoes are designed to be light and to minimize loosening (to remain securely on the foot).

Diabetic Shoe Program

Diabetics are more likely to have major foot problems, and uncontrolled foot problems are the leading cause of hospitalization. Diabetics will develop foot problems in about 25% of cases..

Improper footwear can cause sores or ulcers, which can lead to infection and amputation. Diabetic shoes with moldable insoles have been demonstrated to decrease the likelihood of sores and ulcers.

Early prevention is the most effective method to avoid future difficulties, therefore therapeutic shoes and insoles are a good start.
