25.8 million People in the United States or 8.3% of the U.S. population have diabetes. 60%-70% of diabetics have mild to severe forms of nervous system damage resulting in impaired sensation in the feet. These severe forms of diabetic nerve diseases are a major contributing factor to lower extremity amputations. Medical experts agree that many amputations resulting from diabetes-related foot complications can be prevented by appropriate, properly fitting footwear.
Since 1993, Medicare Part B has provided partial reimbursement for extra-depth shoes and inserts for qualifying patients with diabetes. The classic craftsmanship and sophisticated style of Dr. Comfort are desirable for anyone in search of the finest quality in a comfort shoe. Prescription diabetic footwear can help prevent more serious foot health complications that can arise as a result of diabetes. Properly fit custom shoes from MediCenter Pharmacy can drastically reduce, and even eliminate the pain and pressure that comes from diabetes.
Medicare and supplemental insurance may reimburse for all or part of the cost of Dr. Comfort shoes and prescription inserts for diabetics who meet certain general criteria. Our qualified health professional can determine if you are eligible. If you suffer from diabetes or any foot health concerns, we strongly encourage you to contact our pharmacists to ensure all of your foot health needs are properly addressed.
