Frequently Asked Questions
How do our services differ from a pedicure?
A pedicure is a cosmetic treatment of the feet and nails for beauty and comfort. In addition to trimming nails and removing calluses, our nurses will also remove plantar warts, ingrown toenails, and nails that are no longer connected to the nail bed.
How do our services differ from podiatry?
Our nurses take a systemic approach, looking at the health of the whole person. We utilize nurse practitioners, so we address and treat other issues our patients may be experiencing. We do not do surgery, however.
Will you bill my insurance company?
Yes, usually within seven days of your appointment.
Will my insurance pay for the services?
Yes, Medicare will pay 80% after you have reached your deductible.
Will my supplemental insurance pay the remaining balance?
Yes, most will pay.
How much will my foot care cost?
Our prices are set by Medicare guidelines. Insurance companies adjust the charges, and the balance will either be paid by you as a co-pay or forwarded to a supplemental insurance if you have one. Co-pays range in price from $7.00 to $15.00 per individual charge.
How often will Medicare pay for my foot care?
Every 60 days.
