A5500 is a standardized code for Medicare and other health insurance providers to provide healthcare claims. Diabetic shoes (sometimes referred to as extra depth, therapeutic shoes or Sugar Shoes) are intended to reduce the risk of skin breakdown in diabetics with pre-existing foot disease. Our shoes are designed to help. But you should always speak with your doctor about diagnosis and treatment options. All medical reimbursement claims for A5500 Diabetic shoes are handled through Medicare. More information about this process can be found in our FAQs.
