Toe Filler Inserts

Toe Filler Inserts
for Diabetic Shoes

Medical Resources Limited offers fillers for your patients with Digital or Trans-Metatarsal amputations. Extra material is added to the top of a custom insert to fill the void. We offer three types of fillers:

  • one for Hallux Amputations
  • one for Multi-Digital Amputations
  • one for Trans-Metatarsal Amputations

Toe Filler Reimbursement

Toe fillers can be covered as a Medicare-reimbursable item. Considered a prosthetic device, the filler is billed using the L5000 code with an allowable of approximately $419.00. The prosthetic device is made of the toe filler and the insert as one complete orthotic. This replaces the need for a separate insert for the affected foot. The examples listed below show how to prepare a claim when dispensing six inserts to a patient where three of the six contain a toe filler.

Claim Form Preparation
