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.

Staff was extremely friendly and professional. They took us back immediately and no waiting for doctor to come in. Dr Settles-Carter was amazing with my little girl. She took her time and explained every detail to my daughter. As we were leaving my little girl said Dr Settles-Carter was the best doctor ever. Coming from a 10yr old.

It took some work, and patience, but my feet are much better now. Dr. Freels worked with me to find exercises, and more importantly, the right shoe to wear. So nice not to dread going into work, for the pain of simply walking. Despite what another review here says, they've never tried to sell me any shoes there, have always left the choice up to me.

The staff was very courteous. However, the care provided by Dr. Carter and the staff in the back was exceptional! I finally had answers for my health concerns and issues and a course or plan of treatment including the costs of the services they provide. I especially liked the hours of operation...I can see a doctor for the treatment I need without having to use my personal and sick days! Love the flexibility. Lastly, the ambiance esthetics were relaxing and beautiful.

The entire staff at Lexington Podiatry was very welcoming and friendly. Jill went out of her way to make sure my daughter was taken care of. We appreciate being seen so quickly (it would have taken weeks to have seen an orthopedist for her foot injury). Now, she is on the road to recovery! Great office, thanks everyone!

Had a great experience! Everyone was very nice, it was clean, the doctor took time to listen to me. She showed me my x-rays and explained them to me. I would recommend them to family and friends.
