Custom care for different needs

We realize everyone's feet are different and we tailor your treatment accordingly.

Fee for Service

 In order to offer patients the best possible home based health care, Podiatry Associates of Charleston is a fee-for-service provider. This means we do not accept or file insurance for our home based foot care patients. All payment is due at the time a service is rendered. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, paypal, VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. You can use your Health Savings Account credit card for our services. 

"JUST A TRIM" SERVICE

Frustrated by insurance companies that don’t cover basic services and tired of filling out endless medical forms? So are we! That is why we have created our “Just a trim” Service.If you or your loved one only needs their nails and calluses trimmed by a professional- this is the service for you! We will come to your house, ask a few basic medical questions (for our documentation purposes) then give your feet the care they need. That’s it- medical treatment made simple and efficient.


New patient “just a trim” for the greater Charleston area*

weekday hours between 9 am-5 pm:                  $100.00


Established patient “just a trim”  for the greater Charleston area*

weekday hours between 9 am-5 pm:                   $80.00


* There is a $20 fuel/traffic surcharge for outlying areas such as Seabrook, Kiawah, Awendaw, and Summerville.

This fee is waived if there are multiple patients seen in that area that day.  We always try to book multiple local appointments whenever possible. 


Why doesn’t Podiatry Associates bill the insurance company like other doctors?

The simple answer is- because we are not like a typical doctor’s office.

Many health care insurers will not cover the home services rendered or do so at a rate that makes home visitations a financial loss for the doctor when time and expenses are factored. By not having an office site to maintain or paying for a billing staff, Podiatry Associates of Charleston is able to provide a greatly needed service to our patients at a very reasonable rate. Upon request, the patient can be provided with the necessary documentation so that the patient may submit Podiatry Associate’s charges for possible reimbursement. Reimbursement by an individual’s health care insurer is not guaranteed.
