Insurance May Cover Your Shoes

Taking care of your feet needs to be one of your top priorities if you are living with diabetes.

The good news is that most insurance plans cover one pair of diabetic shoes per year.

Shoes that are made for diabetic feet have defensive properties built in to help protect you and your feet. They come in several styles, so you can have different styles for different occasions as well.

Diabetic Shoe Difference

Dr. Comfort shoes are specifically designed for diabetics because they are:

  • Wider in the toe box allowing your toes to move around and prevents potential cuts or blisters.
  • Form fitted to your feet. Custom shoes mean a better fit and less chance of injuries.
  • Stabilizing, which helps protects patient with neuropathy that have a greater chance of bumps, scrapes and falls.
  • Helpful in preventing diabetic foot ulcers. The less cuts and abrasions you have, the less risk of amputation you have.

As a diabetic, the best way to protect your feet is to wear shoes at all times.

Remember to take the proper steps for your foot care. Check your feet daily and keep your yearly appointment checkups. Take the right steps towards healthier feet.

Absolutely amazing staff! Smiling faces, compassion and understanding! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

I was frankly shocked at how good they were at EVERYthing. They saw me less than 2 hours after I called. Dr. Barko was ebullient and professional. You can ask them questions via TXT, which is huge. Their offices are spic-n-span and modern. Basically, they're knocking it out of the park. I don't wish for more in-grown toenails, but if it happens, I'm going straight back to Lexington Podiatry.

I love Lexington Podiatry! The staff is always so helpful, and attentive. I love Dr. Freels. She is top notch, and is always so happy to see me, and listens to me about what is going on.

Dr. Carter diagnosed and created a treatment plan in minutes- other podiatrists have treated me incorrectly for years. So pleased to have answers and solutions.

My left foot had been hurting for a while. The staff and doctors here are all quite knowledgeable and professional, as well as friendly and personable. My diagnosis was promptly made, x-ray completed right there in the office, and I left with the two braces that I needed. No waiting for the mail, trip to brace shop, nada. Most excellent clinic!
