We now offer diabetic shoes for people that are covered
                  by Medicare and private insurance

Medicare will cover the cost of one pair of therapeutic shoes (diabetic shoes) and inserts for people with diabetes if you have a medical need for them. The Medicare payment for therapeutic shoes is subject to thr requirement that they are necessary and reasonable for protection of insensitive feet or neuropathy (nerve damage in the feet). If you receive your Medicare through a Medicare Advantage Plan (like a HMO, PPO) it is likely you will have to follow the plan's steps for approval and purchase. Make a point of calling your plan's customer service number and ask about their steps for coverage of diabetic shoes.
