Keeping our parents at home is important. But when mom can hardly walk, how do you get her to the doctor? Even if the doctor’s office is located close to home in the East Bay, transportation to and from podiatry appointments can be a burden. Toenails get longer and gradually become painful. But you can get at home foot care with a Medical Pedicure. This service is ideal for anyone who might be at risk of serious injury from a standard pedicure at a nail salon. Podiatrists have extensive medical training which enables them to safely trim deformed, painful toenails for those diabetes, neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, poor circulation, and immune system compromise. We also only use sterile instruments.

That all depends on the insurance company you choose. The services included in a medical pedicure are often reimbursed by insurance carriers. The percentage of coverage varies widely, and is determined by the limitations of your insurance, not by us. Whether or not these services will be covered by your insurance, depends upon the insurance company you chose and the limitations of the insurance policy you purchased. Check with your insurance company to see if they will pay for house calls or common codes associated with “debridement of toenails.” We do provide you with a “Superbill” to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement directly to you. We encourage you to check with your insurance carrier before scheduling an appointment.
No. We practice “insurance-Free Medicine.” That means that our physician has elected to opt-out of Medicare. We do not accept assignment of payment from Medicare. We choose not to accept reduced rates mandated by Medicare. We choose to provide ALL treatment options to our clients, rather than the cheapest or only those “allowed” by Medicare. Practicing Insurance-Free Medicine allows the patient and physician to consider all treatment alternatives in an effort to deliver the very best healthcare.
