Hear What Our Customers Have To Say

Sapphire is such a wonderful resource for people who need specialized footwear. Kevin and Saad are dedicated and helpful professionals who really care about their patients and helping them. 

Sarah A

Hello my name is Richard, I am a grateful new owner of a pair of Gordon walking shoes. I've been wearing the shoes daily for over a month now and just wanted to let your company know they are incredible. I had three surgeries on my left foot, and your shoes have proven to significantly decrease my pain and fatigue. I would like to give Mr. Kevin Jones a very big "Thank you" for his level of professionalism in measuring, fitting, and knowledge about your product. I will be wearing your shoes for years to come.

Richard B

I have had the pleasure of working with Saad and Sapphire Patient Care over the past few months and I am really impressed with the integrity and the unique approach that he and his team are providing for the diabetic population in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and outpatient clinics. In fact they are the only company that goes directly to the patient for their individualized fittings rather than having the patient come to them. I would highly recommend Sapphire Patient Care for their diabetic shoes and inserts.

Sapphire Patient Care is a great company that puts their patient’s first. Saad and his team are great to work with and truly help to get diabetic shoes and inserts that fit best for you or your loved ones!

Steve W

Sapphire Patient Care is an outstanding company! Through their detailed and thorough shoe fitting experience, my Grandmother was able to get personalized shoes, measured exactly for her feet. Sapphire's process is quick and easy, and we got my Grandmother's shoes soon after her fitting. I highly recommend working with Sapphire Patient Care.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Us

Medicare’s Diabetic Shoe Benefit

In May 1993, congress passed the Therapeutic Shoe Bill (TSB). Since then, Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) provides reimbursement of therapeutic shoes, inserts and modifications for those living with diabetes who meet specified qualifying requirements.

Coverage is for anyone with Medicare Part B (or other qualified insurance) who has diabetes, has appropriate documentation from a qualified physician, and:

. Previous amputation of the foot, or part of either foot, orHistory of ulcers, or

. History of pre-ulcerative calluses, or

. Diabetic Neuropathy with evidence of Callus formation, orFoot deformity, or

. Poor blood circulation

Consult a qualified expert or Medicare program representative for more details.

What’s Covered?

Medicare allows one pair of extra-depth shoes per calendar year. For qualifying patients, Medicare will also cover three pairs of inserts each calendar year. Some shoe modifications are also covered but would replace a pair of inserts.

Note: Medicare only covers diabetic shoes and inserts if the doctor is enrolled in Medicare. If not enrolled, Medicare won’t pay the claims submitted by them. Doctors and suppliers must meet guidelines to enroll and stay enrolled in Medicare.

Diabetic footwear can:

Reduce shock and shear. One way to keep diabetic feet safe is to reduce the amount of shock (vertical pressure) and shear (horizontal friction) experienced. Diabetic socks and shoes are designed to reduce these respective forces.

Limit motion of joints. Controlling the range of motion for certain joints in the foot can help to decrease inflammation, relieve pain, and result in a more stable and functional foot.

Relieve areas of excessive pressure. Too much pressure in concentrated areas can result in ulceration (skin breakdown). Diabetic footwear can redistribute forces in a more natural manner, thereby reducing the risk of issues developing.

Accommodate, stabilize and support deformities. Many deformities need to be stabilized to both avoid further damage and relieve pain when diabetes is in the picture. We can help to protect the foot by making sure you have the shoes you need.

Why can’t I just wear comfortable, regular shoes if I have diabetic neuropathy or other foot problems related to diabetes?

The simple answer to this question is another question: why take that risk? Many of the foot problems caused by diabetes can turn into more serious health complications, but they can also be prevented. It is just common sense to take measures that promote better foot health and overall health, i.e., wearing the right footwear. This is especially true when this footwear is often covered by insurance.
