Medicare provides special shoes and innersoles for diabetics
For individuals with diabetes decreased sensation and circulation are common problems. This can result in injuries and sores that aren't always detected right away. For this reason, diabetics are very susceptible to skin ulcerations and infections. The number one reason for diabetics to be hospitalized is a foot infection. In fact roughly 22% of all diabetics will be hospitalized with the foot infection during their lifetime. Unfortunately, these problems can be very difficult to resolve, and diabetic foot infection is the most common cause of amputation in United States. Over 100,000 invitations will be performed in United States next year.
For this reason, preventive care is a covered benefit under Medicare. If your feet are susceptible to problems and you have diabetes, Medicare will even provide you with properly fitted shoes and innersoles every year. If you have a secondary insurance these shoes will be provided at no cost to you. So either call us or the next time you're in the office, ask us about this terrific benefit and whether you qualify. Remember, for the diabetic individual, prevention is always wise.
