Nail Care and Nail Trimming Service

Most of us do not really give a lot of consideration to having our nails cut, but if you are elderly, infirmed or suffer from restricted movement then a nail cutting service can be a very important aspect of your healthcare.

We provide a simple nail cutting clinic that is ideal for the elderly, visually impaired, disabled or people who are simply unable to reach their feet safely. This service is also suitable for diabetic patients.

A professional pedicure may be adequate foot care for most seniors, but sometimes the expertise of a podiatrist is necessary.

Insurances like Medicare may cover routine foot care, like toenail clipping and the removal of corns and calluses in specific circumstances. It does cover treatments that Medicare considers medically necessary. For example:

  • If you have foot problems that are caused by conditions such as diabetes, cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic kidney disease, or inflammation of the veins related to blood clots.
  • If the act of toenail clipping would be hazardous to your health unless done by a professional, such as a podiatrist.

In all these situations, you need your podiatrist to provide evidence that the care is medically necessary. Click here to schedule an appointment.
