Foot care (routine)

Medicare doesn’t usually cover routine foot care.

Your costs in Original Medicare

You pay 100% for routine foot care, in most cases.

What it is

Routine foot care includes:

  • Cutting or removing corns and calluses
  • Trimming, cutting, or clipping nails
  • Hygienic or other preventive maintenance, like cleaning and soaking your feet

Extra benefits from MA plans

Some Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C) offer extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover - like vision, hearing, or dental. Contact the plan for more information.
