Promoting Access to Diabetic Shoes
The "Promoting Access to Diabetic Shoes Act" (H.R. 4756) Introduced
AANP is excited to report that (H.R. 4756) the Promoting Access to Diabetic Shoes Act has been introduced in the House of Representatives. This legislation will authorize nurse practitioners (NPs) to certify their patients' need for therapeutic shoes. Currently, NPs must send their diabetic patients who need therapeutic shoes to a physician to certify that need. This can cause delays in treatment which jeopardize the health of patients and cause the Medicare program to incur additional costs by requiring the participation of an additional provider. Please use this link to ask your Members of Congress to support improving diabetic patients' access to needed therapeutic shoes by cosponsoring the Promoting Access to Diabetic Shoes Act (H.R. 4756).
