Diabetic Footwear

Diabetes and Footwear

People with diabetes are at high risk of severe foot disorders, including foot ulceration, infection, and even amputation. In fact, diabetes complications are the main cause for foot and leg amputations in America (more than 6000 every month). Studies show that proper footwear, consisting of well fitted shoes with sufficient width and depth along with protective molded insoles can dramatically reduce the risk of ulceration and amputation.
Jeff's Prescription Shop is proud to carry a complete line of Dr. Comfort diabetic footwear. Qualified Medicare patients are eligible for 1 pair of shoes and 3 pairs of custom insoles every calendar year!
Jeff's we are pleased to have Lauren as our certified diabetic depth shoe fitter. 
Stop by and allow Lauren to fit you properly for a pair of Dr. Comfort diabetic shoes.

SPECIALLY ENGINEERED TO PROTECT DIABETIC FEET

HOW CAN YOU PROTECT YOUR FEET?

To provide your feet with uncompromised fitting and protection, your doctor can prescribe you therapeutic shoes, which are specially designed for diabetic feet:

To eliminate irritation of the skin these shoes are made with soft leather, padded with extra foam and smooth lining.

They come in a variety of widths to precisely fit your feet and eliminate pressure points.
  The shoes are constructed with extra depth to fit multi-layer insoles, which are molded to your feet by your foot care specialist.

These customized, multi-layer insoles will disperse your body weight over a large area, alleviating pressure on the bottom of your feet, and reducing the risk of ulceration.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

You are eligible for the Medicare Therapeutic Shoe Program if:

Your primary insurance is Medicare; and
You are under the care of a physician (MD or DO) for your diabetes; and
You have at least one of the several common risk factors associated with diabetes.

WHAT DOES THE PROGRAM PROVIDE?

Under the Therapeutic Shoe Program eligible patients are entitled to one pair of shoes and three pairs of molded insoles annually. Medicare will cover 80% of the cost, and if you have a secondary Insurance, it will cover the 20% balance of the cost.
