Medicare Coverage for Shoes - Correct Coding - Revised
Medicare has limited coverage provisions for shoes, inserts, and shoe modifications used by beneficiaries. In order to be eligible for coverage, such items must qualify in either:
(1) the benefit category for therapeutic shoes provisioned in the treatment of a diabetes-related condition(s) or
(2) the benefit category for leg braces (to which the shoes and related items would be considered for coverage as integral components of the leg brace).
