Therapeutic shoes or insertsThe Medicare Therapeutic Shoe Bill allows people with diabetes to get specialized footwear and foot orthotics that are custom made to provide the proper fit and gait for our patients.
For each individual, coverage provides for one pair of extra depth shoes and three pairs of inserts annually. Medicare will pay 80% of the eligible cost. Secondary insurance may completely cover the remaining cost.
