Medicare Billing or DME Reimbursement
Since 1993, 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. ( Click here to view an article showing how diabetic amputation rates have fallen dramatically since the mid-1990’s.)
We are also a certified DME biller for Geisinger Gold and HighMark insurance plans, so if you qualify for Diabetic Footwear and have one of these insurance plans, we can fit you and get your shoes billed.
Prescription diabetic footwear can help prevent more serious foot health complications that can arise as a result of diabetes. Medicare and supplemental insurance may reimburse for all or part of the cost of diabetic shoes and prescription inserts for diabetics who meet certain general criteria. A qualified health professional can determine if you are eligible. If you suffer from diabetes or any foot health concerns, we strongly encourage you to see a foot health professional to ensure all of your foot health needs are properly addressed. Just stop in to discuss this with our certified fitters.
If you prefer, we can also provide you with a brochure you can take to your Primary Care Physician to see if you qualify and get your paperwork started. This brochure explains the process for both you and your doctor and includes simple 1-2-3 instructions, along with the forms your doctor will need to complete. It also has some important facts about diabetes foot health. If you would like us to mail you this free brochure, just submit your request using our Contact Us web form.
