FACTS & STATISTICS
In May of 1993, Medicare's Therapeutic Shoes for Persons with Diabetes Benefit took effect. The Medicare Therapeutic Shoe Bill (TSB) provides reimbursement for depth shoes and multi density inserts to qualifying patients with diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association, there are over 20 million Americans with diabetes and this number continues to grow. Twenty-five percent of persons with diabetes develop foot problems and each year more than 86,000 amputations are preformed as a direct result of diabetes. Recognizing this problem, Congress approved the Medicare Therapeutic Shoe Bill, helping thousands of persons with diabetes obtain protective footwear and inserts at little or no cost to them.
Persons with the diagnosis of diabetes, whether insulin dependent or not - are eligible for shoes and inserts.
WHAT IS COVERED
Each calendar year (January 1st to December 31), a person can receive one pair of depth shoes and three pairs of multi density inserts. For example, if a person receives their first pair of shoes in November of 2016, they would be eligible again in January, 2017 to receive another pair and every year thereafter. Depth shoes can be off-the-shelf or custom molded.
All Diabetic footwear and inserts are covered by OSI's acceptable insurances:

I have for the first time in over 12 years been able to
sleep at night without getting up to get ice or other
treatment for my diabetic neuropathy. I was on my way
to Mayo Clinic to see a neurologist about my feet pain
and stopped into your store on August 21st. As I left
your store, I changed from my shoes and that night at
the motel in Jacksonville, I wore the Gauntlets. I slept
without the tremendous pain I have become used to and
the next day bragged about these gauntlets to the neurologist.
I gave him your brochure. Over the past two weeks, I have
felt so blessed to have met you and received these new
booties. I wear them every evening and all night, and
if I am home during the day, sometimes I slip into them.
I have washed them and they came out great. I can't say
enough good things about these gauntlets and have told
many people about them. I work as a Caregiver with geriatrics
and have told my patients about this tool.
