Proper Shoes are a Must for those with Diabetes

Diabetic shoes are a medical device and as such should be provided by a qualified individual, primarily defined as a podiatrist, orthotist, pedorthist, or pharmacist. Sports and Wellness meets those requirements.

We will measure and evaluate your feet, fit the shoes and inserts, and follow-up with you to make sure that your shoes are accomplishing your desired and prescribed goals.

About Medicare Therapeutic Shoe Program 

In order for Medicare and most insurance companies to pay for a pair of diabetic shoes, inserts and accommodations, your physician must certify that you meet one or more of the qualifying conditions. Fill out this form to get more information and help from from us.

  • The qualifying conditions include a previous amputation of the other foot, or part of either foot, a history of previous foot ulceration of either foot, a history of pre-ulcerative calluses of either foot, a peripheral neuropathy with evidence of callus formation of either foot, deformity of either foot or poor circulation in either foot.
  • You must have had an examination within the past 6 months. The examination must document the underlying condition and specific need for the shoes.
  • The physician will need to complete a certification statement documenting the under-lying condition for Medicare and most insurance companies.
