Shoes- break even proposition?

Question to orthotists-

A) Considering the cost vs reimbursement for shoes and related add-ons, do

you provide shoes at break even (or at a loss) and write it off as a cost of

doing business, or do you avoid getting involved in billing for shoes?

B) If you do procure shoes and bill for them, what have you found to be the

most cost effective shoes for diabetic patients?

C) Are you part of the Medicare diabetic shoe program? Why or why not?

I’ll post replies.
