How are diabetic shoes different?
If you’re living with diabetes, you need to take special care of your feet. That’s why we make our shoes to help protect and give you relief from common yet dangerous problems. For most, those can include poor circulation, foot ulcers, numbness or, in severe cases, amputations.
Plus, because our shoes offer “extra-depth,” they can fit custom insoles and orthotics for better support and comfort as well.
Does Medicare coverage matter to you? Then all shoes and inserts must be prescribed by your doctor and fitted by a certified foot care professional.
There are a variety of styles for men and women to choose from, like sneakers, boots, sandals, heels and more.
A high number of health risks and costs come from foot problems caused by diabetes. So getting fitted with the right footwear can help decrease ulcers and amputations.

What You Need From Your Doctor For Insurance Coverage
Please help us process your order in a timely manner. That means before you can receive your Diabetic Shoes and Inserts, we will need the following:
1. Prescription for Diabetic Shoes and Inserts, including a valid diagnosis. This may come from a MD, DO, D.P.M., PA, or NP.
2. Notes from a doctor’s visit from the past 6 months that indicates your doctor is treating you for diabetes. The doctor must also do a thorough foot exam that indicates what secondary foot conditions you have. And why diabetic shoes will help. Secondary foot conditions have to be at least one of the following:
Foot deformity (hammertoes, bunions, claw toes)
Peripheral neuropathy with evidence of callus formation
History of pre-ulcerative calluses
Previous foot ulcerations
History of amputations
3. Statement of Certifying Physician Form that is signed by the physician treating the patient for diabetes. We will send this to your doctor from Xceed Medical to fill in a sign.
4. Processing Time
Please note that the average time frame for getting all paperwork and insurance before approval is about 4-6 weeks.
