The diabetic shoe program is a program through Medicare part B.  If you have Medicare and you have diabetes, there is a good chance that you qualify. The shoe program will allow you to obtain a special in-lay extra depth shoe and up to 3 pairs of inserts per year.   Beware of mail order catalogs or pharmacies that claim they can get you shoes that are covered!  Medicare has specific guidelines that can only be determined by a physician.  The only way to know if you qualify is to make an appointment at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic and our doctors can determine what shoe gear is right for you. We will write a prescription, if you qualify, to one of the certified pedorthists in the area that will work with your primary care physician and our office to get you shoes if you qualify.
