*PODIATRY SERVICES EXPANDED FOR MEDICAID PATIENTS*

One of the most devastating outcomes of uncontrolled diabetes
is the threat of losing a limb. Studies have shown that there
is a critical link between regular foot exams and diabetes
management. For persons with a diabetes diagnosis who
participate in New York State’s Medicaid program, there has
been a positive change in benefits that makes it possible
to obtain services from podiatrists(foot specialists). 

At the end of 2012, the Medicaid Redesign Team proposed that
all Medicaid patients should have podiatric care.  The
benefit to persons with diabetes is significant.

According to the American Diabetes Association, approximately
60 – 70% of the people with diabetes have mild to severe forms
of nerve damage that could result in foot problems.  They also
estimate the total national cost of diagnosed diabetes in the
United States is $174 billion.


Every 30 seconds, a lower limb is lost to diabetes somewhere
in the world. People with diabetes are more prone to develop
foot infections, called foot ulcers, which can quickly result
in amputation. Preventing amputation means knowing the main
warning signs. Other common diabetes warning signs in the
feet besides ulcers include:


·       Redness

·       Numbness

·       Swelling

·       Cold to touch

·       Inflammation

·       Change in shape

·       Slow-healing cuts


The New York State Podiatric Medical Association recommends
that if any of these symptoms are discovered to visit a
podiatrist immediately. Including a podiatrist on the
diabetes management team can significantly improve a
patient’s ability to manage diabetes successfully.
