“Routine” foot care means toenail clipping and the removal of corns and calluses. Medicare doesn’t cover these except in specific circumstance. But it does cover treatments that Medicare considers medically necessary. For example:
In all these situations (and others that may qualify for Medicare coverage of foot care), you need your doctor or a podiatrist to provide evidence that the care is medically necessary. Cited From www.arrp.org
A visit to a podiatrist is a benefit covered by most insurance plans. However, there can be restrictions due to changes in recent health care coverages.
To avoid any additional cost to the patient, Podiatry Group of Georgia will work with your insurance company to get your services covered. Sometimes this requires our office to send in a letter of medical necessity which will state the reasoning behind the recommended treatment and include the patient’s history and diagnosis.
As a courtesy to our patients, we will contact your insurance company prior to your visit to verify that services are covered and that no referrals are required. This allows us to provide you with the best care while making sure you are aware of your insurance benefits for any treatments or services recommended for your specific condition before they are performed.
