Foot care (for diabetes)
Medicare covers foot exams if you have diabetes‑related lower leg nerve damage that can increase the risk of limb loss. You can get a foot exam once a year, as long as you haven't seen a footcare professional for another reason between visits.
Your costs in Original Medicare
After you meet the Part B deductible , you pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for any medically necessary foot treatment your doctor approves.
In a hospital outpatient setting , you also pay a copayment .
What it is
Depending on your exam results, foot care may include treatment for foot ulcers and calluses, and toenail management.
